It is a chapter book and book 9 of the "Pony Pals" series. My now grown daughter LOVED these books as a child (she begin to read them when she was about 8) and read all of the ones in the series. I found her copy of many of them and decided to try and read them to see what they were like. You can read these as stand alone books; but the reader would understand and relate to the girls better if you read them in order. If you have to miss one 'here and there' it's not big deal; you won't be lost

Whena girl named Pam is on a trail ride she sees a pony she never saw before. She finds it's Mr. Kennedy's horse. Mr. Kennedy moved away and left it behind. She and her pony pals, Anna and Lulu try to tame the wild horse and make it healthy before she is killed and sold for salvage (horse meat). C.M.

I really liked it because it was about horses and I liked the way it ended. I like these books because the endings are not too fast but I didn't like how the characters were being so negative with each other.

When I was younger, I loved horses! I read lots of these books and really enjoyed them. Of course, it's been a long time since I've read these, but I can assure you they are worth reading.

When I was growing up I never thought of being an author. I was a terrible speller and didn't want to write any more than I had to. I wanted to be a tap dancer when I grew up. After a few years of teaching junior high and high school, I wrote my first novel. It was a surprise to discover that I liked making up stories and writing them down. I liked it so much that eventually I stopped teaching and ...more
