Sturdy supporting player Edward Underdown is afforded a rare leading role in The Great Pony Raid. The scene is rural Dartmoor, where a gang of thieves have been regularly stealing the farmers' ponies. Because they operate under cover of night, the rustlers manage to elude the law. Ah, but they're not clever enough to avoid detection by a group of precocious children. Banding together, the kids appoint themselves protectors of the remaining ponies, and, in so doing, set the stage for the rustlers' downfall. Clearly designed for the Saturday-matinee trade, Great Pony Raid serves its purpose well.
