Equitainment's Comments

I find this series of books such a great read. Alyssa Brugman's way of retelling the stories of growing up in suburbia and going to shows and pony club, is so realistic.

Reading the first book in this series took me straight back to my own teenage years and seemed so accurate it could have been written all about me (minus the horse thief moments of course).

It's wonderful to get such an authentic Aussie flavour in a pony story too. Learning about how people ride from other countries is terrific, but lets not over-look our very own pony club and competition culture here in Australia as well. It's a great way to grow up, and I look back on my own days of hanging out with friends and being very tired and dirty after a day with the horses, as some of the best days of my life :-)

The whole series is highly recommended and one I'm sure you'll enjoy.

Product Overview

Shelby is convinced her reliable but ugly pony, Blue, is holding her back at Pony Club. If only she had a beautiful horse, everyone would see what a great rider she is.

But how can Shelby buy a new horse when her parents can't even afford to pay her Pony Club fees?

When she sees an ad for an eye-catching brown pony for sale or swap, Shelby thinks she's found the answer to all her problems. Maxshine Celtic Copper - otherwise known as Brat - seems perfect.

But swapping a pony who's your best friend for a highly strung horse whose beautiful brown coat washes out with shampoo turns out to be a really bad idea.

The race is on for Shelby and her friends to catch a horse thief, find her beloved Blue and return Brat to her rightful owners.
