it was amazing
bookshelves: british-fiction, horse-fiction, young-adult

A young lady who worries about the English family farm being taken by the bank, manages to acquire a Thoroughbred colt at auction (cheap as he doesn't like to race) and decides to train him up for racing. Well, naturally she can't set her sights any lower than the top. The costs escalate and the horse refuses to run anywhere without his best pal the elderly pony.
While horse lovers will have a good chuckle, the lesson can really be that the family has to pull together; even the grumpy brother gets involved in researching how best to train a racehorse. If they can just manage to succeed, the prize money will resolve their financial problems. Friends are more helpful than expected and the drama will hold you to the end.

This is an unbiased review.
