Jane Badger: Jill and the Lost Ponies

Pony Jobs for Jill ended with Jill and Ann all set to go off to secretarial college. For years, I wondered what Jill would have made of secretarial college, and so I wrote this story, which takes Jill and Ann away from Chatton and on to London. Do they find ponies in London? They do. But they’re also faced with a problem after Jill’s beloved ponies are sold.

“Last night I finished reading your Jill and the Lost Ponies. I can honestly say that It is one of the best sequels I’ve read… I love the way you tie in previous events from the Jill books and the way you weave the various characters into the plot. I love the way Jill talks to the reader, the comments she makes and the language she uses, because they are all so “Jill-like” and feel authentic to such an extent that it really feels as if RF is actually writing it… Thank you for a wonderful book.” (Kate)

“I read Jill and the Lost Ponies, and it was brilliant, thank you! It completely brought Jill back. I haven’t enjoyed anything that much for a long time.” (Helen)

“A great read for fans of the original series, but also for pony-loving children who are yet to discover Jill.” (Horse & Hound)


In Ruby Ferguson’s Pony Jobs for Jill, Captain Cholly-Sawcutt told Jill and Ann to put ponies aside as a hobby and go and do a shorthand course. I always wondered what would happen if they went off and did just that. And so in this sequel to the Jill books, set in the 1950s, we find Jill and Ann are at a London secretarial college, doing what they’ve been told to do. With ponies left firmly behind them. Or so they think.
