Joanna Cannan: Another Pony for Jean

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 Jean does find a new pony … When out hunting one day, Jean is involved in an accident. Will she remember her mother’s unconventional first aid lessons?

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