The Pony Detectives are on their second horsey whodunit adventure to solve the mystery of the marsh ponies. Written by Belinda Rapley, a British Horse Society Instructor, the adventures revolve around four horse-mad friends who stable their ponies at the same yard. But this foursome aren’t just good at jumping and showing – they’re also great at solving mysteries! Belinda’s combined love of horses and writing results in a sparkling set of novels for readers aged 7-11. The series will appeal to all pony-mad fans with the added intrigue of a thrilling detective story, especially girls who love Cathy Cassidy’s stories of friendship and Lauren St John’s mysteries.
