Lutterworth Press, Guildford, 1969, 125 pp. (Crown Pony no. 12)
October has outgrown her first pony, Pebbles. Instead of a sensible next pony, she chooses the one-year-old filly she calls Southern Cross. Cross’s training is covered from that point on. After the filly has been backed, and before she can enter the County Show in-hand championship, she has a terrible accident with a lorry. Cross’s legs, though badly injured, do not scar, and she is able to take part in the show.
