The follow up to the classic 1930s pony story, A Pony for Jean. Jean and her pony Cavalier are getting on well now, but there are still fights with her cousins, and struggles to get things right. She has no thought of getting a second pony: she’s happy enough with the one she has.

But life doesn’t always work out as you think it will, and sometimes it actually goes better.

Jean, of course, doesn’t find her new pony by the straightforward way of combing through the latest edition of Horse and Hound and buying one.

Instead, when out hunting one day, Jean loses her cousins after an argument and is left on her own. When she’s involved in an accident she needs to act quickly to avert disaster. Will she remember her mother’s unconventional first aid lessons?

What happens next is the stuff of which pony book dreams are made.

This is a vintage story written in the 1930s, and it reflects the attitudes and laws of the time, when hunting was legal.

Not only a reminder of growing up reading pony books but a fascinating window into life in England in the era preceding World War II . Made infinitely more interesting by the publisher choosing to stick with the original writings showing a life where “poor” is defined as having only one servant in the family. (Cathie)
