School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-Annie, Jill, and Meg, aka the Pony Scouts, are learning to ride horses on Jill's farm. During her lesson, Annie works on her balance but falls off her pony when she becomes distracted. She isn't hurt, but she is frightened. Her friends and Jill's mother try to encourage her to get back on, but it is the prospect of riding the foal, Surprise, someday that helps Annie to relax and try again. Realistic color illustrations assist readers with visual clues. This book will hold children's interest, especially girls who love horse stories.-Melissa Smith, Royal Oak Public Library, MI (c) Copyright 2011.

Horn Book Review

Competitive Haley is super-prepared for her first recognized eventing competition on Wings, her Chincoteague pony. But on the big day, she falls off and is disqualified. Will Haley be able to redeem herself at the next show? Authentic horse-related details give this earnest self-actualization story polish, while Haley's online community, the "Pony Post," helps her gain perspective on her competitive nature. Glos.
