On the Sidelines by Grace Wilkinson
Too much is changing for Sybil, and moving yards is the final straw. But three-star event rider Rose Holloway isn’t what Sybil was expecting, and despite initial reservations, she warms to Rose, if only for the sake of her pony, Jupiter. Maybe change won’t be so bad after all…
But after a disastrous event, Sybil’s plans are ruined, and a summer of eventing is no longer on the cards, leaving her on the sidelines as her friends move on to FEI ponies.
A flighty and sensitive pony arrives at the yard to be sold. The mare is everything Jupiter is not, and certainly not the kind of pony Sybil would have ever thought of riding, but she accepts Rose’s offer to help train her, though Sybil doubts whether she is up to the challenge.
