For any child with a passion for horses, this collection of fourteen tales, gloriously illustrated by Inga Moore, is the perfect equine companion.

Saddle up, take the reins, and prepare for an exhilarating ride through this field of horse tales! Here you'll find difficult horses and dream ponies, ponies in danger, and horses that ride to the rescue. June Crebbin's collection of fourteen stories draws on a wide range of places, times, and cultures: there are tales from Ancient Greece, fourteenth-century Mongolia, and France in the Middle Ages; traditional tales from Russia and Native America; and stories from the present day, too. The horses and ponies themselves are equally diverse — of all colors and characters — each magnificently rendered by award-winning artist Inga Moore.

A fine gallop through a field full of horses takes readers from the feisty orange pony of the first story, past an Indian mud pony, Bucephalus, Black Beauty, Misty’s forebears, a grey Welsh, a unicorn and a Medieval palfrey.
