My all time favorite childhood book I loved it because the horse in this book behaved like a REAL horse i.e., ornery, unruly, unmanageable at times , unlike those Stepford wife type of perfect horses found in so many horse books. Favourite childhood author who read my first attempt at a book when I was 17, despite having never met me A lovely story any horse lover will love.
