Jessica, Ann, Martin and their mother move out of London into the New Forest. They are determined to have a pony of their own, and in the end, through an enormous amount of hard work, they manage to save up the ten pounds to buy Gipsy.
I’m a freelance writer, editor and proof reader. I’ve written Heroines on Horseback (2013), a gallop through the pony book in children’s fiction, and have written the world’s largest website on equine literature.
My earliest horse memory is being bitten on the arm by a piebald who lived in the field at the end of our garden. It did not put me off.
