The One Dollar Horse

Casey Blue lives in East London, and rides occasionally at a local riding school. Her one ambition is to enter Badminton: a hopeless dream, it seems, as Casey is poor, with a father who has just come out of prison and who cannot get a job. And Casey has no horse. And if she did, inner city London is not the best place to train for Badminton.

Casey Blue lives in East London, and rides occasionally at a local riding school. Her one ambition is to enter Badminton: a hopeless dream, it seems, as Casey is poor, with a father who has just come out of prison and who cannot get a job. And Casey has no horse. And if she did, inner city London is not the best place to train for Badminton. One day, Casey finds that she has a horse, bought for all the money her father had on him: a dollar coin he keeps to remind himself of Casey’s American mother. Horse bought, Casey’s problems are by no means over.
