The second of four new horse stories packed with expert advice on competition riding from top eventer and Olympic medallist Pippa Funnell.
Tilly Redbrow doesn't just love horses - she lives, breathes and dreams them too!
Tilly is elated that she and her beloved horse, Magic Spirit, have been selected to train for the British Equestrian Junior Squad. It's like a dream come true. She is looking forward to spending a week at top event rider, Livvy James' yard and being taught by a professional. Together with her team mates Anna, Ben and Kya, they start their days early and finish late working in the yard, getting to grips with stable management and riding with Livvy. It's not easy, there's a lot to learn and the strain begins to show with jealousy and rivalries that threaten to break the team as they all try to earn a place in the limelight.
Packed with expert advice from champion rider and Grand Slam winner, Pippa Funnell, on everything you ever wanted to know about horses, and perfect for all fans of NATIONAL VELVET and Lauren St John's One Dollar Horse trilogy.
Pippa Funnell is the recognised champion of the eventing world. She began riding when she was very young - on a pony lent to her by a friend of her mother's. An Olympic champion, she became the first and currently only person to win Eventing's greatest prize, the Rolex Grand Slam. TILLY'S PONY TAILS marks her debut in children's fiction. She lives in Surrey with her husband, William Funnell, a top class show jumper.
