Book Description

1 Feb 2007
"Fly-by-Night" was not the best choice for an eleven-year-old girl who had never ridden before; but as soon as Ruth Hollis saw the sturdy, lively pony, she knew that he was the one she wanted. All her life Ruth had longed to own a pony and now that her family had moved from London to a new housing estate in East Anglia, she had persuaded her father to let her spend her savings on a pony. But having taken possession of Fly-by-Night, Ruth found that her troubles had only just begun.

4.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING!!! 20 Nov 2010
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 Ruth Hollis before Pennington. 25 May 2007
By Mrs. F. S. Haynes VINE VOICE
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.

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.
