A charming listen with a valuable lesson: Don't judge a book by its cover, or a horse by its coat. Shelby is convinced that her homely pony Blue is keeping her from being recognized at the Pony Club, but her parents barely have money for the fees, let alone a new pony. When Shelby manages to swap Blue for a horse with a gorgeous brown coat, everything seems to be looking up. Then the color on the horse's coat comes out with shampoo, and Shelby realizes she has a stolen animal. Will she be able to catch the thief in time to rescue Blue? Girls who love horses will be smitten with this story, and Alison Bell's heartfelt performance conveys the passion perfectly.
With interesting characters and plenty of action this audiobook has wide appeal – it's not just for horse-lovers.
Shelby is convinced her reliable but ugly pony, Blue, is holding her back at Pony Club. If only she had a beautiful horse, everyone would see what a great rider she is. But how can Shelby buy a new horse when her parents can’t even afford to pay her Pony Club fees? When she sees an ad for an eye-catching brown pony for sale or swap, Shelby thinks she’s found the answer to all her problems. Maxshine Celtic Copper – otherwise known as Brat – seems perfect. But swapping a pony who’s your best friend for a highly strung horse whose beautiful brown coat washes out with shampoo turns out to be a really bad idea. The race is on for Shelby and her friends to catch a horse thief, find her beloved Blue, and return Brat to her rightful owners.
