Sam is scared of riding: the only horse she’s comfortable with is her mother’s gentle cob Velvet. But it’s time for Sam to learn to ride ponies at the yard where her mum and sister ride. Sam’s elder sister is a brilliant rider, and Sam wants so much to follow in her footsteps. But her first lesson is a disaster. Help is
on hand from an unexpected quarter: it turns out the Shetlands can talk. They don’t like the yard bully, Cecilia, any more than Sam does, and hatch a plan for Sam to show the yard owner what she’s made of, and at the same time do Cecilia down. Unfortunately this plan involves Sam riding the yard’s nightmare pony: Mulberry. And Mulberry’s the one pony who won’t talk to Sam.
