5.0 out of 5 stars Ruth Hollis before Pennington. 25 May 2007
By Mrs. F. S. Haynes VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
This is a lovely introduction to Ruth whose destiny is to fall in love with Pennington, K M Peyton's hero from the Pennington trilogy. Aside from it being a horse story, Ruth desperately looking after a horse in a modern housing estate, adds to her families finacial woes, it puts in place the foundations of her characterfpr when we met her in the Pennington books. The next in the series is The Team which introduces Jonnathon and Peter from Prove yourself a hero, and a Midsummer nights Death. All excellent teenage reading though I have to say I still read again and again long since being a teenager, this is K M Peyton reminding us of all the heartache and unfairness of teenage life love and horses. Please read.

4.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING!!! 20 Nov 2010
Format:Paperback
I'm 13 and this was a great book for me, including the team - the following book in the series - and Blind Beauty by K.M Peyton. If, K.M Peyton is new to you I would recommend her to you because, she's great for children aged 10-14 even adults wouldn't mind her. She's great about horses and writes good plots.
This is a heart braking but tempting and loving book all in one about Ruth Hollis who really wants a pony but, her family don't have enough money. She meets a boy called Peter who helps her out and gives good friendship. Finally she finds a pony for a cheap amount. However, this pony doesn't behave and is really difficult and as Ruth's first horse this is her toughest challenge yet!
If you like a great book about horses, love, passion and adventure this is definitely the book for you and you seriously can't miss it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling! 12 Sep 2007
By hf
Format:Paperback
This is a fantastic story from one of our best writers of 'teen' fiction. K M Peytons books are beautifully written and very real. Ruth, from this book, is your average pony mad girl growing up in a non horsey family. The book highlights her desire and the problems that can occur when an unknowledgeable person aquires a pony. We follow the trials and tribulations and the charcaters, equine and human, grow from strength to strength. The sequel The Team is an even more compelling read!

The Fidra edition is lovely, with the original front cover illustration and a nice introduction by the author herself.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite book as a child 24 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I hired this from the village library as a kid, - since shut down! - and wanted to read it to my children, there is one scene in a tack shop that is soooo vivid its like being there. I eventually got my first pony at thirteen and this book could be about me. Brilliant.
