Hodder & Stoughton, 1980, illus Susan Hunter
Joanna, who is not the most popular member of Blackbirds, is horrified when her horse injures a judge’s foot at the local gymkhana. The Blackbirds try to make up for it by offering to help the judge at her own riding stables, but of course it doesn’t go to plan. There is a lost child, and Joanna, who is a bit accident prone, is blamed for everything that goes wrong. However, in the end she saves the day.
