Perfect for the pony mad market - the fourth in a series about Tilly, a girl who is also a 'horse whisperer' - from the eventing world's number one rider.
It's nearly Christmas and everyone at Silver Shoe Farm is excited about the Olympia horse show - especially Tilly. It's a chance to see some of the top show jumpers in the world, as well as some wonderful displays. But her enthusiasm is overshadowed when her favourite horse, Magic Spirit, gets ill and needs every possible attention. Then, at Olympia a chance encounter with Samson, a highly-strung stallion, means Tilly's special gift with horses is not only in demand at home, but at the show too!
For every girl who has ever longed for a pony of her own, these delightful, warm and engaging stories are packed with Pippa's expert advice on everything you ever wanted to know about horses.
Pippa Funnell is the first woman to become eventing's world number one. She was born Pippa Nolan in 1968 and, with her first horse, Sir Barnaby, went from pony-club level to Badminton, en route winning the European Young Rider title in 1987. Her numerous victories include back-to-back European Championships in 1991 and 2001, and back-to-back Olympic silver medals in 2000 and 2004. She is the first winner of the Rolex Grand Slam, in 2003, and has won Badminton three times, in 2002, 2003 and 2005. In 2003 she was awarded the Sunday Times Sportswoman of the Year. In 2005 she was awarded an MBE in the Birthday Honours List. Pippa is married to the international show jumper William Funnell and lives in Surrey.
