Could't read enough horsey books when I was little! Never got round to getting rid of many of them either - thought I might read them again when I'm old and grey.

I guess it's safe to say it was one of my favourite books as a kid. I kept reading and re-reading it.

Jean and Angus move to Washington from America when their dad gets a job in America. They are sad that they have to leave their ponies behind but are relieved when some new friends lend them horses to ride while they stay in America. It doesn't take long for them to hear about the "phantom horse" that lives in the area. Completely wild and slightly dangerous, whoever catches him gets to keep him.

This story is a good horse story. I haven't read one in a while and I enjoyed it. I was given the who
Sweet, wholesome pony story. The characters are unique and there's a good balance between ponies and plot. The only let-down is that it feels quite dated in parts, but still a fun read.
