I Had Two Ponies
“I don’t want to spend the Easter holidays grooming a beastly muddy pony."
It’s not what you expect to hear from the heroine of a pony book, is it? To be fair, Christabel is more of an anti-heroine. Does she improve? Will you like her by the end of the book?
When Christabel’s father sells her ponies, Christabel gets over it pretty quickly. She’ll have plenty to do without them. But then she goes to stay with the Westlakes while her parents are away.
No one likes it when they realise that people don’t think very much of them, and that’s what happens to Christabel. And she begins to think the Westlakes are right, and comes to bitterly regret selling her ponies. But will she ever be able to find them again? In a pre-internet age, it’s not easy.
Released on 14 October 2020.

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.
