The Radney Riding Club

(1951)
(The third book in the West Barsetshire series)
A novel by

 
 
Henry is in despair. His new horse, Evening Echo, is not going well. It is cold comfort that none of the other local riders seem to be any better. Henry decides he'll start a riding club, and with the help of Noel, that's what he does.

Josephine Pullein-Thompson gives us another cast of wonderful characters: Alex, cursed with a pony so terrible he seems to have no redeeming features; Christo, whose black mare is only rarely under control, Eric, whose cob, Princess is under such rigid control she barely breaks out of a canter, and Paulina, who prefers to waft about looking pretty than put any effort into riding well.

Can the club manage to learn something and compete at a local one day event?
