The first of the Pony Club series, in which Polly and her family move to Cambridgeshire. There Polly finds a stable and starts helping out. Moon Dancer is a new pony bought by the stable’s owner, Miss T. He has been badly treated, and the book deals with Polly learning to ride better and understand Dancer. Their success creates jealousy with the rich girl at the stables, Jessica Pemberton, but in the end Dancer and Polly triumph and Jessica flounces out of the stables.
