Horses of all kinds and their amazing and very different characteristics have always excited Joe. He has already had much excitement with pony club champion Lightening and Fortune in stories set in the Hidden Horseshoe Sanctuary. Now, at a visit to a ploughing match, Joe meets shire horses and learns just how specially brave these very different horses can be. How Joe and the shires come to the rescue make a thrilling story.

About the Author

Victoria Eveleigh

Victoria Eveleigh was born in London, but her heart has always been in the countryside, and her stories are full of the things she loves: horses and ponies, countryside, farming and people.

The stories were initially self-published, but in 2012 Orion Children’s Books published these stories as Katy's Wild Foal, Katy's Champion Pony, Katy's Pony Surprise, and A Stallion Called Midnight. The books include author's notes, charming chapter illustrations by Chris and beautiful cover illustrations by Angelo Rinaldi.

Victoria's new trilogy - Joe and the Hidden Horseshoe, Joe and the Lightning Pony and Joe and the Race to Rescue - has involved some fascinating research about farriery, aikido, Pony Club mounted games and heavy horses. The stories still have horses and ponies at their heart, but this time a boy called Joe is the main character. Victoria feels that boys don’t feature enough in pony stories nowadays and she hopes that both boys and girls (and adults) will enjoy reading them.
