Pine Valley Ponies by Kate Welshman
Published by Scholastic Australia
It was the end of May. They were at Pony Club and talking about the gymkhana. Well...Alita demonstrated a canter on QC her pony. And then Maddy had her go on Snowy and Snowy was a bit lazy. It took her a long time to start moving.
And then it was breakfast time and Alita said she was going to braid her pony’s tail. Then it was time to go home. Maddy asked her mum what her pony Javelin was like. Her mum loved Javelin. Maddy wanted Snowy to be like Javelin, to listen to her.
Maddy wanted to practise their starts, stops and turns. Then they went to gymkhana.
Then Snowy went missing Iris found Snowy in a muddy puddle and Maddy saw Snowy. Maddy hopped onto Snowy’s muddy back. Maddy knew that she wouldn’t win the dressage and she was correct because Snowy’s back was filthy.
The second last event was the riding class and she came first. Maddy was very proud of that.
I rate it 10/10.
