“The sun glinted off the steel. I looked at Cara standing so trustingly before me. She didn’t know that I was doing this for her, out of love. I ran my finger down the edge, testing the blade. It was razor sharp. Once I made the first cut there would be no turning back…”
On a remote island in the Bahamas, a twelve year-old girl is about to embark on an epic adventure. Her journey will take her through hurricanes and across the high seas, halfway around the world and back in time to Christopher Columbus’s Spain, as she unravels the real-life mystery of the world’s rarest horse…
The last thing you’d expect to find in the jungle on a tropical island is a horse. Or so Beatriz Ortega believes until she stumbles across a wild mare with strange ‘medicine hat’ markings in the jungles of Great Abaco.
Beatriz feels an instant connection with the island mare; a bond that will push her to the very limits of her courage and take her back in time, to Spain in 1493, where another young girl, Felipa Molina and her horse, a mare named Cara, are also fighting for their lives. As the fates of Beatriz, Felipa and their horses become ever more entwined, Beatriz realises that the future of the island horses depends on her…
Based on the extraordinary true story of the Abaco Barb, The Island of Lost Horses explores a real-life mystery that has remained unsolved for over five hundred years.

Jock Paget wins Burghley!
To win Badminton and Burghley on the same horse in the same year is a feat that no-one has achieved since Ginny Leng on Master Craftsman back in 1989!
It was the most exciting Burghley Horse Trials ever as Jock Paget took the lead right from dressage phase and held it all the way on Clifton Promise! Incredibly Jock also held second place too on Clifton Lush after the cross-country! Unfortunately Lush had a bang on the fetlock during cross-country and Jock decided to withdraw him before the trotting up for the showjumping phase.
Jock won with a rail still in hand over fellow NZer Andrew Nicholson who took second and third place.
Jock’s rise to stardom is amazing. Like the incredible UK rider Mary King, Jock is a latecomer to eventing. He had never jumped a fence before he was 18 and made his living for a while riding rodeo broncs! Now he is one of the best eventers in the world and has won the two most famous four stars – Badminton and Burghley.
*Super-secret fact for Pony Club Secrets readers: Stacy actually based the character of Marcus Pearce from PCS books 12 & 13 on Jock after having riding lessons with him!
