Sasha knows what it's like to be unloved for she has been pushed from foster home to foster home too many times to remember. Her one true love is horses but it's too much to hope for that the latest foster home, complete with lots of horses could be the one that becomes permanent. Diana Kimpton is a terrific storyteller and There must be Horses is a real page-turner, but be prepared it is also an emotional rollercoaster that will have you verging on tears and laughing with joy. Can Sasha's talent of handling troubled horses and in particular one horse persuade the foster parents to take her in permanently and give some stability to Sasha's life. This is an absolute must-read for pony mad kids lucky enough to have their own pony as well as those who wish they had one.
There Must be Horses by Diana Kimpton
Sasha's love of horses has been the only constant during her turbulent life in care. When a failed adoption placement results in yet another move, she ends up at Kingfishers - a farm where Joe and Beth train troubled horses. To Sasha, this seems like the perfect place to live. But she can't stay. Joe and Beth are adamant about that. They have only agreed to take her for a little while, and they only did that reluctantly. Can Sasha persuade them to change their minds and let her stay forever? And can she do it before her social worker finds her another home - one without horses?
For me, this has to be one of the best pony novels I have read this year. It has all the ingredients needed for a superb pony story: a great sympathetic character, a bond between girl and horse, emotional depth and an intelligent exploration of deeper issues.

Wow! What a book! There Must Be Horses is a thoroughly modern pony book that is not sentimental but a crisply written piece of teenage fiction with superb characterisation and a pacy plot. It gripped me from the start to the very last page. Catherine Hawley of Juxtabook and CL Hawley Books
I was gripped by this story right from the start. It's so involving, so emotionally intense, that it sweeps you along with it and is almost impossible to put down. Awfully Big Blog Adventure
