A Stable to Let

Collins Pony Library no 13, 1973, pictorial boards, 158 pp.

“Cherry is not happy about moving once again. She has been indulged by her wealthy parents, and gets off to the
wrong start with Jennifer, the neighbor girl, when she demands that Jennifer sell her pony to Cherry, and that money
is of no object. Fed up with his spoiled daughter, Cherry’s father decides that not only will there not be a pony, but
Cherry will not even get riding lessons until she has learned all she can about horse management. So Cherry is
sent to the local riding school, to clean stalls in exchange for learning. Gradually she becomes a better person
 for it, and eventually does get her first pony, a far different pony than the “money’s no object” Silver King which
 she so desired.”
