From the cover: “The author, who is still in her ‘teens, here writes her first tale for children. By it she shows that she is just as much at home writing of the adventures of a little girl and her pony as she is imparting advice and instruction to children about riding. Throughout the book one follows the exciting career of ‘Cherry’ and her pony ‘Brownie’ with an interest that never flags. Would ‘Brownie’ be good enough to jump at Olympia? In a style fresh and spontaneous the author describes the series of events which lead her heroine from the dawning of a wonderful idea to the happiness of a dream come true.”
