I was pleasantly surprised by this book.

I love horse books, I love boarding school books (remind me of my favourite Enid Blyton books growing up), so I was pre-programmed to like this book. However, it exceeded my expectation, and I was sucked in by solidly defined characters, breezy writing, fun plot and great readability.

Horse crazy teens are going to love this series, and other middle aged people will reminisce about when they were horse crazy teens as they read this.
