Pony Club Camp

The last glorious swansong of the West Barsetshire Pony Club sees the Major run a camp for the Pony Club members. Noel and Henry have now left school and have returned as instructors to deal with the loose and the runaway, and that’s just the ponies. The Pony Club members are even worse. Pony Club Camp is filled with extraordinarily vivid characters who will stay with you long after you finish the book. And it ends on a note that has tantalised readers ever since the book was published.

A vivid cast of characters both human and equine and it is a tribute to JPT’s skill as a writer that I found it just if not more enjoyable as an adult than as a child.
