Sisters Niki (11), Beth (9) and Lolly (6) have been looking forward to spending the summer holidays with their grandparents and Aunt Anna in the New Forest. They are having the most fabulous time, enjoying long rides, competition, fun at the yard, camping in the forest, mucking out and tack cleaning. But excitement quickly turns to dismay when they discover there’s a gang of horse thieves nearby.
While riding on the open forest with their friends they realise they are being targeted. After several close encounters with the rustlers, they fear for the safety of their beloved ponies and their herd of wild ponies who live deep in the forest.
Will they be able to evade capture or is time running out?
Mica clearly knows what it’s like to live in a community within the New Forest and what it’s like to grow up with friends, family and ponies. From the very beginning of this book you will find yourself enjoying life as a child, surrounded by friends and close family, confident around ponies and brave enough to face those that want to take away everything you hold dear.
