Too Many Ponies

by Sheena Wilkinson

Rosevale is a peaceful sanctuary for abandoned ponies. Aidan’s family can’t afford to run it any longer, but if Rosevale closes down, what will to happen to all the animals?

Then Lucy comes up with a brilliant idea! There’s a cross-country riding competition offering an unbelievable cash prize. Can she and Aidan put together a team that’s good enough to beat their posh rival stables and win the competition?

Too Many Ponies is a heartfelt and exciting story for horse lovers everywhere.
