Friendship, horses and adventure at an Australian agricultural show - book four in this irresistible series of chapter books for young readers who love horses, created by two of Australia's bestselling storytellers and illustrators.
Bonnie and Sam are best friends. No one loves horses the way they do. When Bonnie whispers to them, they understand, and Sam always knows if they need a drink, or a hug, or a race around the paddock.
Now it's time for the Royal Show, and the girls are going to help their riding teacher get ready for a big competition. But in a backyard near the showgrounds they see a sad, neglected, starving pony - and it's Bonnie and Sam to the rescue!
Illustrated in full colour.
