    When I picked this book up I personally thought it would be a bore as I’ve read the later books in the series and didn’t feel like a slow introduction to the characters. but not only did I understand certain things they mention later in the series but I personally found it spun in a moral that if we hang out with badly- behaved kids no matter how cool it seems it will always mean TROUBLE but the type that are always so well behaved may seem boring but they will make excellent friends for life! as well as a good moral this book has humour horses and gripping moments perfect for readers ages 9-15 who want to be hooked on a good book all day!

    It’s a good book for everyone – but I would recommend it for serious horse lovers. Although I wish I could read WAY more than just the first chapter. Nice. 10 out of 5!
