C.W. Anderson is a great horse story writer. He had the plot down--nice girl helps horse become the winner she always knew he could be, plus great illustrations. This book involved a lot of her walking the blind pony around and getting him to trust her, but any horse lover will love it.

I couldn't get enough of these as a child. I really loved horse stories like these where the girl and the horse work together to get better and win a show. This was a very quick read. Wonderful illustration.

I liked the trust that built up between the rider and the blind pony. I read this book several times during my grade school years. It was one of my favorite horse stories.
