Hazel M Peel: Darius the Eventer

A glimpse into the horse world of the 1960s. Ann and Jim Henderson breed horses, and one of their horses has a problem: he can’t concentrate. Not ideal when you’re trying to get a horse ready for the Badminton three day event. But even Darius pales into the horizon when Ann’s beloved first horse, Pilot, is desperately ill. Horses aren’t the only problem for the Hendersons. Pat O Hara’s father blames Ann for his imprisonment, and when he escapes, he’s hellbent on revenge.

Hazel M Peel: Dido and Rogue

Will Rogue be the one horse for whom Ann and Jim have to admit defeat?

Ann and Jim Henderson have bred two very different horses. Sweet-tempered Dido can turn on a sixpence and brake alarmingly fast: all very useful for a polo pony. But Rogue is different. He has been difficult since birth, and the older he grows, the more menacing he becomes. His very survival depends on whether Ann and Jim can find the key to him.

Hazel M Peel: Night Storm the Flat-racer

Ann and Jim have bred a wonderful black colt who looks as if he could be a Classic winner. But nothing is straightforward: Night Storm has a furious temper and is difficult to ride. There are questions about whether he’ll ever get as far as a racecourse, let alone race. And once he does race, there are people around who want to stop Night Storm in his tracks.

Part of the 1960s Leysham Stud series, where a couple fight to establish a prize-winning stud.

The Conways have lived at Charnworth all their lives, and they love it. They love the farm, and the estate where their father is the land agent. But now Lord Charnworth has died, and the estate has been sold to a Mr Smithson, a financier from the city. The family know that things can’t possibly stay the same, but Mr Smithson seems determined to listen to strident modernising voices, and not their father, and the relationship between him and Mr Conway deteriorates by the day.
