From the author of Darkling, Poor Badger, The Boy Who Wasn't There, and The Wild Boy and Queen Moon comes this first story of a stunning new series about horses.
'Rowan made no effort to get up - it was awful. Swallow... her daring Swallow! Nearly killing her....'
From the moment she first sees him, Rowan is head over heels in love with Swallow, the spirited bay pony who enters her life with a bang - literally. But wild Swallow is hard to handle, and Rowan suffers falls, bruises and plenty of teasing as she struggles to master him.
Then a suspicious-looking man turns up, claiming that Swallow is his pony. After all her hard work and effort, will Rowan now lose her beloved pony?
