The Racehorse Who Wouldnt Gallop

Charlie Bass is a horse mad ten year old who dreams of owning her own pony So when she accidentally manages to buy a racehorse Charlie is thrilledThe horse she buys Noble Warrior looks the part strong fit and healthy There's just one problem he won't gallop In fact he won't This was a feel good predictable but fun success story 10 year old Charlie Bass aka Thunder Thighs at least to her brothers saves the farm by buying a racehorse that won t run for anyone else making it into a champion It reminded me a lot of The Mad Scientists Club a favorite when I was about Charlie s age Both books feature bright children who hit the books believed in their goals tried hard won Great stuffA typical pony is a main character He s an escape artist ready to savage people who offend him although he never does is always hungry Better yet he farts pees at the least appropriate times He almost splashed ueen Liz who took it in stride of course but that s a real life issue with animals euines in particular There were a lot of those real life moments While Balding took a lot of liberties with reality she knows horses well did a great job of dropping bits into an otherwise fanciful storyI was surprised that the term herd bound was never used I wonder if that s an American expression or if there was some other reason she avoided using it We always did with a pair of POA mares who were as bad Sorroya tore up the trailer almost killed herself at a show once After that Marg had to make sure to keep them in sight during shows although Briar wasn t as badI ve only read one other book by Balding her autobiography My Animals and Other Family which I gave a 4 star review to here We have little in common yet I find her a kindred spirit I ll have to read of her books She has a lot than I d realizedHighly recommended Well narrated
