HFG Witherby, London,1954, 143pp, illus Peter Biegel
Jenny is given a pony by her grandmother for her birthday. Before she had this pony, she was only allowed to ride an elderly pony as someone in her family was killed in a hunting accident. It turns out the new pony can jump, and as the new cowman fortunately used to be in the cavalry, he teaches Jenny, though he does scare her sometimes with his unexpectedly loud voice. Her ambition, though, is to ride at the International Horse Show.
Acute readers may notice a certain similarity between this and Bred in the Bone.
