Can you describe it? Maybe we can help you find it.

oliviasbooks The German edition had a girl riding a grey horse on it. The heroine came to live on a sheep farm (with relatives, I think), where they also breed horses. She had to go to school by horse riding down a steep mountain. She defies a cattle thief, fetches help in a storm, learns to shave the sheep and watches a group of Maori cook/barbecue something in an underground oven at the beach.
That was my first "touch" with the existence of "New Zealand".

oliviasbooks I googled a bit and it might be Hilda at School, but I do not remember much school-related plot. So, I am unsure.

Albie46 Oh I love horses, but I was a bit late to the horse thing so the only horsie book I read as a child was Bow Down Shadrach by Joy Cowley

(not the right cover)
and I think the teacher actually read it to us, rather than me actually reading it myself!
