An exciting new junior fiction series inspired by true stories from the Wilson Sisters' childhoods. Let the adventure begin . . . taming a wild pony!

When nine-year-old Vicki Wilson’s beloved lease pony is sold, she is heartbroken. Her family doesn't have much money, and she is desperate to have a pony of her own so she can keep riding.
Then Vicki has the chance she has been waiting for, to tame and train her own wild pony! How will she earn the trust of her beautiful new chestnut? And will Dandy ever be quiet enough for her to ride at Pony Club or compete at Ribbon Days?
This story is inspired by the Wilson Sisters’ early years, where Vicki, Kelly and Amanda Wilson first encounter horses in the wild and learn what it takes to make them champions.

The classic template of all great pony books - the girls with big hearts and absolutely no money who find an unloved pony and with hard work and natural talent...make them a champion against the odds.
