The Maxwells have decided that Misty will be sold after Christmas and Tess focuses on getting through the next seven weeks. She has other worries though because Haley is determined to see to it that her pony is never sold and she will do whatever it takes to keep Misty...
Jonty Fisher has a big role in this story... He is a good friend to Tess when she needs one the most... Jonty encourages Tess to do her best and he patiently works with her — and, he keeps her calm and focused...
We finally catch up with Katy, AJ and Susannah at a show attended by Haley and Tess... How will the show go for the young friends?
Tess has to do both their chores when Haley has to go lie down because she has a migraine — which usually happens when there is work to be done... Is Haley really sick every time she claims she has a migraine or is she just trying to get out of doing her chores?
This was another delightful edition to the Pony Jumpers series. It was a quick and easy read. It was good to read a story from Tess' point of view — we hardly ever hear from her unless Haley is screaming and yelling at her...
Like all the books in this series this one is as much about family dynamics and friendships as ponies. Something is wrong with Hayley, and while that's being investigated she isn't supposed to ride her new horse Copper. Neighbour Jonty steps in to exercise Copper, and Tess forges a friendship with him that could go much further than mere friends - to the disgust of her friend Mia who fancies Jonty for herself. Tessa has a lot to deal with, and some unexpected people become her allies and friends.
I love this series - can't wait for the next one!
Lattey's books, by contrast, are polar opposites. Riders work their butts off for the privilege of riding, taking care of aspects of horse ownership, including but not limited to feeding, watering, cleaning stalls, cleaning tack, grooming, bathing, braiding, scrubbing buckets and repairing fences. As any equestrian knows, this life isn't about skipping through the clover until the day they miraculously win the gold cup. These books are the real deal and I love them.
My complaints are: First, why in the world would the publisher recommend them only up to 18 year olds? That's ridiculous. I am in my late 50's and I really, seriously enjoy this author. I've been an extremely avid reader (still find time for at least 3 books a week) since age 10. I own 6 horses, four warmbloods, an OTTB and a Morgan. Although I ride in a different discipline (dressage and eventing) I really enjoying learning about the horse and pony scene in New Zealand.
Secondly, I am very hopeful that a big time publisher will pick up Ms. Lattey's work. I'd be thrilled to listen to her work on Audible when driving to Disneyland with the grandkids, give boxed sets to every Pony Clubber in my area and even share them with my trainer! As of right now they are only available digitally and some in paperback. Somebody get on the stick!

I loved Four Faults as much as her previous three books,the way she weaves and blends the charactors from one story to the next.Once I start reading Four Faults I couldn't put it down until the end wishing it was longer.
To sum up if you love horses and good pony fiction then read these.Can't wait until book five!
Throw into the mix a budding romance and some lessons in friendship and even harder lessons in life, and you have another really good read from this author.
