When Poppy’s aunt and uncle with whom she lives at Starlight Stables tell her the devastating news that the Stables may have to be sold to meet debts she is determined to win the forthcoming show jumping competition and be able to offer them her prize money. For a horse-mad pre-teenager, what is there not to love about this series? Intriguing story lines, best friends, pony club competitions/ written by someone who knows teenage ‘speak’/ thrilling horses and No Boys in View. The series is set in Australia and with its one off story line in each book is set to go on. I am sure there will be plenty of younger sisters and friends waiting in the wings, ready to take over as Milly and Poppy and Katie slowly grow up.
