The summer holidays see Rissa and Tamzin, together with their ponies, Rissa’s cousin Roger and their new friend Meryon Fairbrass enjoying themselves on Romney Marsh.
Collecting junk to swop with a gipsy for an unbroken colt, rehearsing for the Charge in the local pageant, camping out, and at last cleaning up the mystery of the Hooded Horse that galloped the sands at dead of night. The country people thought it was a ghostly horse, and death to look on, but spirits don’t leave footprints.
The Midnight Horse is the third book in the Romney Marsh series, and is set just before The White Riders.
It has wonderful line drawings by Anne Bullen
