      This is one of the rare children's books about animals that is even better seen through the eyes of an adult re-reader. The details about horse showing are so spot-on--the footing after a rainstorm, the trainer's bone-tiredness, the shady trainers with armies of fancy ponies, the fact that even some mediocre riders get clients because they get lucky with a talented horse.

      not sure heart-rending moments but the end wrapped up too soon and the 'baddie' was known quite early on. Also never felt invested in the main character Caroline??? and have LITERALLY just finished it.

      LOVED this book. "His name was Buttercrumb Cake so naturally I called him The Crumb". Terrific story about a girl and her pony that ends poorly.
