Josephine Pullein-Thompson: A Job with Horses

Glorious, simply glorious. (Amazon review Mar 2022)

It’s always been the two of them: just Kate and her mother. But now her mother has remarried, and has a new baby. Kate is happy about none of this. She’s offered a job at a castle being in sole charge of children’s ponies, and horses used for jousting. Kate has the normal sort of worries anyone has about their first job: will she cope? Will the children like her? This book has all the Pullein-Thompson technical detail you expect as Kate teaches three children who’ve taught themselves to ride that there is a Better Way, as well as schooling the horses used for jousting.

Combining solid horse detail with adventure, this is the last fictional title Josephine Pullein-Thompson wrote, and it’s one of her best.
