Angela Peabody has everything she wants. Absolutely everything. She has only to ask, and its hers. And then she moves to the country and thinks that what she wants is a pony. She gets one of course: Flash, the pony she rides at her smart London riding school.
Angela thinks she’s a wonderful rider, but once Flash is away from the riding school, things very soon fall apart. And Angela isn’t exactly brilliant at accepting help, particularly when it comes from the bohemian and scruffy Cochrane family. But surely her wonderful pony and her wonderful riding will be enough for her to sweep the board at the local show? Surely she’ll beat the Cochranes …
This is a reprint of the classic 1940s pony story.
What an enjoyable story this is. A good mix of characters and straightforward storyline. As a pony story obviously ponies feature heavily (and they’re an interesting mix too) but I felt the story was more about the transformation of the main character, Angela. I enjoyed this nostalgic trot through a pony story of yesteryear although I’m considerably older than the target age. Pony mad children of today could enjoy it too. (Dawn)
