Pine Valley Ponies - The Forbidden Trail by Kate Welshman
Published by Scholastic Australia
Maddy and her pony Snowy are going to start taking riding lessons at Pine Valley Ranch, where Maddy’s mother learnt to ride. Maddy is very excited. Then she turns up for her first lesson……
Most of the other kids have Jodhpurs and Jodhpur boots whereas Maddy wears gumboots and jeans. However, when Iris Digby rides up a trail she is wearing the same clothes as Maddy. Maddy’s teacher, Pattie Gibbs tells Iris the trail is forbidden and makes her promise never to go on the trail again. Maddy wonders why the trail is forbidden.
Does Maddy find out why the trail is forbidden??
Does she fit in at Pine Valley Ranch??
This book was cool and it was very easy to read. Some of the words are made bigger so they stand out. I think girls aged 7-9 would like this book.
