This is a fantastic story for pony obsessives. As well as engaging and unusual characters, Jane Smiley packs the story with lots of detail about training and riding horses. If you're not pony-mad, this might get in the way of the story, but if you're not pony-mad you probably wont pick up this book. True enthusiasts will learn lots about horses, including the hard work that's involved.
Don't let the dreadful twinkly, twee cover put you off!
