Regan seemingly has it all. She comes from a privileged and wealthy family. There are private aeroplanes, fancy cars and of course, expensive competition ponies.
However Regan has a problem...she does not want the pony her mum has just bought her. Yes, he may well be every girls dream. She will, without a shadow of a doubt, go on to win many ribbons with him. Then why is it, that every times she looks at him, all she could think about is her mother...her dying mother?
There are many wonderful pony books out there, but this one, I felt, was a little bit special. It not only immerses you in the competitive pony world, but it also explores the complex relationship between Regan and her mother. At times it is heart-breaking, especially as Regan watches her mother's health deteriorate, to the extent where she begins to show signs of dementia.
What I loved about this book is that it turned the usual 'pony story,' on its head. Usually it is the rich kid that is portrayed as 'spoilt' and having everything done for her, with, lets not forget, the pushy mother. Although, Regan's mother is a little like this at the beginning, Regan does not play to form. Yes, she has a groom, but she is more than happy to muck in. What she really wants is a horse she can work with, not one that could make even the most untalented of riders look good. Could there be such a pony at the stable?
