Nancy Wright Grossman

Nancy Wright Grossman, an amateur historian who wrote The Place Names of Portsmouth, a guide to Portsmouth, New Hampshire, has written a four book series about Dutch Mill Stables. All of the books I think are aimed at the younger reader, being relatively short reads. The series is described thus in the blurb: “Kids who love horses: rich kids, poor kids, good kids, spoiled kids, girls, boys - you’ll meet them all at the Dutch Mill Stable. Where young people have wonderful, heartwarming adventures and learn important lessons about riding, horse care, friendship, values - and, above all, about life.”


Finding the books: all the books in the series are easy to find. None were published in the UK.

The Dutch Mill Stable starts a branch of Pegasus, a riding programme for disabled children.
Lucinda has always longed to ride, and with the help of the other children at the stables, and
the horses Georgetown and Easy-Does-It, she might just be able to get some confidence.
