Riley, Louise

About the author

Louise Riley’s proved very difficult to track down. All I know about her is that she wrote at least one other children’s book beside her horse title: Spell at Scoggin’s Crossing (1960). The Mystery Horse has proved equally difficult to track down!

Finding the book
Very tricky to find.

Bob takes on a stray filly. The police, meanwhile, check to see if the filly’s been reported lost or stolen. When several mysterious men turn up at Bob’s ranch, the answer seems obvious; the filly’s been stolen.
