Wendy Wins Her Spurs

‘To win a pony in a competition and to have it for one’s very own is often the dream of the young pony enthusiast and many would be more than satisfied with such happiness. But for Wendy winning Smiley was just the beginning of her real ambitions and of all her efforts at making a success of her job, to enjoy and profit by her spare-time riding and, above all, to train and school her pony well.’

“To win a pony in a competition and to have it for one’s very own is often the dream of the young pony enthusiast and many would be more than satisfied with such happiness. But for Wendy winning Smiley was just the beginning of her real ambitions and of all her efforts at making a success of her job, to enjoy and profit by her spare-time riding and, above all, to train and school her pony well. In this sequel … Dorian Williams describes Wendy’s graduation from her pony to a horse whom she names Ebony but with whom she has little success. In spite of this, Wendy is destined to win her spurs and the excitement of the story mounts when she is suddenly faced with the challenge of riding Tinkerbell. This supreme test is made still more thrilling by the fact that it comes to Wendy during a day at the White City.”
