Around the age of two, Black Beauty witnesses a hunting chase for the first time. He sees the dogs go racing over the field, followed by swift horses and their riders. They chase a hare away and back again, following it even though they have to leap over a tall fence. Most of the hunters make it over the fence—forcing their horses to make the jump—but two horses fail to complete the jump. One rider and his horse survive, but the other pair, George Gordon—son of Squire Gordon—and his horse, Rob Roy, die from the accident. Black Beauty and his mother note: the hare has been caught; yet for what price have these men bought such a small prize?
When his trainer sent him to a neighbor’s meadow for further training, he witnessed for the first time a train. Though he was initially frightened by it, he soon became quite used to the noisy, flashing contraption. This proved to be of huge benefit to Black Beauty, as he was more used to railway stations and other features of city life than other horses.
