When Bryony and her family move to a little village by the sea, she knows that adventures are just around the corner. While exploring the woods near her house, she encounters a beautiful chocolate brown bay pony. Something has spooked the pony and caused him to bolt, but Bryony manages to calm him using her natural ability and their instant connection. Days later, she can’t stop thinking about him, so when she sees an advert in the local post office from a lady wanting help with her daughter’s new pony, she immediately answers. When Bryony turns up at the manor house, she is delighted to see that it is indeed the same pony. But the pony’s owner, Arabella, isn’t so happy to see her. In fact, she’s determined to keep Bryony away. Will Bryony ever get the chance to get close to the sad little pony? And why is Arabella so intent on keeping them apart?
