Read full description of the books:



Although I consider K.M. Peyton to be 'the' classic pony book author, this book deals with issues far beyond the usual horse-related drama. The book actually begins with a shocking incident--Jonathan Meredith is effectively tricked into getting a girl at his boarding school pregnant (she lies about being on the Pill) after which he finds himself punished by his swanky school and upper-class family. So he runs away to train a broken-down racehorse for the Grand National while squatting in a house with an aspiring jockey friend of his, Peter McNair. After reading The Team (which has the same cast of characters), it was interesting to see these characters grow up so much, so quickly.

The book is, like the The Team, very much of its time (i.e. the 70s). Jonathan is in many ways doing the horsey version of "turning on, tuning in, and dropping out." But the somewhat melodramatic description doesn't do the book justice and I think it contains some of Peyton's most insightful and gripping prose, as well as one of her strongest female characters--Pip, the girl Jonathan really loves, versus the one who has his child.
