A nice pony story for horsey mad girls (even adults)! It would make a good stocking filler or small present.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absorbing, enchanting tale of thrills & spills, that pony-mad children and teenagers will love!, 2 Dec. 2012

This review is from: Matty and the Problem Ponies (Matty Horse and Pony Adventures #2) (Kindle Edition)
This fantastic story, (the second book within a trilogy) that is dedicated to Redwings Horse Sanctuary was a gripping read that all pony-mad children & older equestrian enthusiasts like myself will love. Matty is a typical fourteen year old teenager who is mad about horses, and who would rather spend her time mucking-out stables with her three best friends than shopping for clothes, which reminded me very much of the hugely popular ¡¥Saddle Club¡¦ series by Bonnie Bryant that I loved to read when I was a teenager. Full of drama and suspense this book has you sat on the edge of your seat throughout as you immerse yourself in Matty and her adventures with two very special ponies; Snowstorm and Comfort.

The story begins with a witty, ironic for sale advert ¡§¡Ksweet, placid and 100% in every way¡¨ that is about Comfort, the pony that Matty Mathews and her friends buy without realising her true nature. As soon as they take her back to the local livery yard ¡¥Old Fort Stables¡¦ the dream turns into a nightmare as they find out that this chunky, 14hand pony is unschooled and very green. Gina, Ronnie and Spike also have drama¡¦s of their own which infringes upon Matty¡¦s already hectic, stressful schedule that is soon filled with another appointment. Her pen friend Silke comes to visit and the entire yard becomes alive with activity, as the drama intensifies with each chapter. Some exciting escapades include Elliot and Comfort escaping, Comfort getting stuck in a swimming pool and most alarmingly when Matty finds a for sale advert about a horse called ¡¥Snowstorm¡¦ which instantly sets in motion a wave of emotions that had been buried deep, and which is the catalyst for great change. Things soon heat up as Matty¡¦s boyfriend Mark takes an interest in her friend Silke, who could not be more annoyingly glamorous and attractive. As they are busy getting acquainted Matty¡¦s mind is filled with training schedules for Comfort, who seems to be increasingly sluggish and her stress levels reach an almighty peak as Spike is whisked away to France. Can Comfort ever become a good schooling pony? Is Mark two-timing poor Matty? And will she ever see her beloved Snowstorm again without upsetting all those whom she holds most dear?

This fantastic pony story will keep you glued to the pages for hours as you immerse yourself in a world of horsing around, tack cleaning and teenage concerns (i.e. Boys, clothes, fitting in and spots!). Reading this story took me back to my teenage years when I plastered my walls with posters of horses, read PONY Magazine and spent every spare hour covered in mud and straw as I chatted animatedly with my pony-mad friends down at the local stables, planning the next Gymkhana. This character-driven, exciting and thrilling tale was a delight to behold hence I cannot wait to read the next instalment and look forward to reading more books by Jane Ayres. I must also give credit to those wonderful ponies; Elliot the cheeky Skewbald, Soames the jealous Cob, moody old Bessie, Everest the ex-show pony, Cy the frisky bay, Penny the Chestnut, the cute Shetlands Bumper and Binky, the Thoroughbred horses Mia and Sovereign, Lydia the Cob, Polo the Connemara and of course the loveable Comfort and the eye-catching Snowstorm¡Kphew! Whose distinctive characteristics can be related to many horses and ponies at our own local stables.

If you love horses and ponies then regardless of age I would highly recommend this brilliant story, which certainly left me wanting to read more!! º
