Ponies on the Trail
Ponies on the Trail is the second book in the Sandy and Fergie series. It's based around a pony trek, but quite an unusual one in pony book terms as Sandy and Fergie are actually the youngest ones on it. Jake, owner of the nearby trekking centre, has asked them to help out with a new idea of his: a week-long adventure holiday on ponies, sleeping in shepherds' huts up in the hills of Shropshire.
The riders range from teenagers to the just about retired, and are a very mixed bunch. They and Sandy and Fergie find themselves heading for a week full of things they did not expect.
These unexpected things include the merest hint of romance (still not a thing in the pony book of the 1970s). It's fairer to say it's more boy-girl attraction than romance, but it's there.

Heroines on Horseback
The pony book galloped onto the children’s book scene with a flick of its rosetted bridle, and has remained a fixture ever since. Brave girls and nervous ones, scruffy ponies and ornaments of the show ring cantered through pony tale after pony tale, all fallen upon by an audience desperate to read anything that reflected their own passion for the pony.
