Marion Coakes and Gillian Hirst
Pelham, London, 1970
Written by Gillian under her married name
Set against the background of show jumper Marion Coakes and her horses, this is the story of Sue-Elaine, and the difficult palomino, Sea-Blond. Sue-Elaine is an art student, and when she first claps eyes on Sea-Blond, she wants to draw him. The horse comes to Marion’s stables for a short stay. Mark helps Elaine find the horse again, and he’s helped out of his depression by the pair.
