If you have read this book or want to read it, also i would reccommend buying 'Prove Yourself a Hero' by the same author, which is all about Jonathan, one of the secondary characters (and my personal favourite character of Peyton's) getting kidnapped for a ransom (it also includes lots of horse racing, so don't worry about that, horsy fans) and features Peter McNair (one of the main characters of this book) as an important character.

This book is accurate as regards British Pony Club, and wonderfully horsey, but it's also realistic. Ruth isn't a perfect rider OR a perfect person. She has flaws and problems, and a life that is sometimes rocky. She, Peter, and Jonathan are real people. Visit them again in Fly-by-Night, Free Rein, Prove Yourself a Hero, A Midsummer Night's Death, and the Pennington books (Pennington's Last Term, The Beethoven Medal, and Pennington's Heir).
Though I'm much older now, I still re-read both of these books occasionally to remember how it felt to yearn for horses and good tack and the opportunity to show. These books are good for young people, all the way up to adult, due to the fine writing and universal themes.
I'm SO glad that 'fidrabooks' has re-issued these excellent titles!
Peyton is one of the few horse authors I like, There are hardly any ohter writters that give a 'real' story.
If you liked these I recomend reading Bold Venture if you can find it, it may be out of print.
