Good story, quickly paced. However there are 3 glaring technical errors if you know horses/eventing. They cost some serious credibility with me, but non horsey people wouldn't notice them. Whilst I really support the meaning behind this book, it is on the simplified side. So it would suit younger readers or those with a lower reading ability well.

Overall, I did really like this book.
