A boy namedShastaoverhears Arsheesh the fisherman negotiating to sell him to a powerful Calormene feudal nobleman. He is relieved to discover that Arsheesh is not his real father, since there was little love between them. While Shasta awaits his new master in the stable,Bree—the nobleman's stallion—astounds Shasta by speaking to him. Bree is a Talking Horse from Narnia who was captured by the Calormenes as a foal. He tells Shasta that the nobleman will treat him cruelly, and Shasta resolves to escape. The horse suggests that they ride north together to the land ofNarnia. On their journey, Shasta and Bree meet another pair of runaways:Aravis, a young Calormene aristocrat, andHwin, a Talking Horse. Aravis is running away to avoid being forced to marryAhoshta, theGrand Vizierof Calormen, while Hwin's story is much like Bree's.
