Jonty – Pony Jumpers Special Edition

Jonty Fisher hasn’t grown up with horses.

Hasn’t grown up with much of anything, tell you the truth, except a love for being outdoors and a restless energy he can’t quite contain.

The unexpected arrival of a bedraggled black pony on his eleventh birthday marks the beginning of a new direction in his life, setting him on a path that will determine what he can make of his future.

But as Jonty’s desire to prove himself builds, the school of hard knocks never fails to keep pushing him back down, and it will take a lot of courage, resilience and heart for him to find a way to follow his dreams. Still, if it was meant to be easy, everyone would do it…

Amazon reviewer ~ “5 stars. Reading Kate Lattey’s Pony Jumpers series has been a wonderful window into the world of New Zealand’s horse culture. All of Lattey’s books have helped me appreciate why such a tiny nation has produced some of the best–and the toughest–riders in the world. Jonty is a wonderful, scrappy hero and I especially loved reading about his efforts to tame his wild little pony. Jonty gets kicked around literally and metaphorically quite a bit but the reader never stops wanting to cheer him on.”

Amazon reviewer ~ “5 stars. Unusual for a boy to be the hero of a pony book, but it really works for this one!”
