Tilly's special gift draws her to an injured young thoroughbred racehorse, Red Admiral . Red might never compete again - unless Tilly can find a way to help him. Perfect 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.
