British Pony Books Home

This is a listing of the main characters (human and equine) in pony books. It concentrates on just the main series. Gradually character lists are being added to every book on this site (not all my own work, but the noble efforts of forum members!) Jill has her own listings, attached to each book on the Ruby Ferguson section of the site. You can see the one for Jill’s Gymkhana here. So far there’s a few of the main pony book series, but there are plenty more to go. If you can help, by sending me a list of the main characters in any book, I’d be hugely grateful!
