Noel has no self-confidence. John has a nasty temper. June’s mother thinks June is wonderful (and so does she). Evelyn thinks dressage is a waste of time. Her sister Hilary is not so sure, and Richard, well Richard is very good at hiding the truth from himself. The Pony Club is the despair of Major Holbrooke, its district commissioner.

Reviews

All in all, I found the story highly entertaining and I really enjoyed it. Now onto the second in the series!  Nicky

The most enjoyable ‘pony book’ ever written! I read this series as a child and have re read them every few years as an adult. Although some of the language and context may sound dated my own daughters have hardly noticed due to, I believe, the high quality of writing. Nell
