The Racehorse Who Wouldn't Gallop
A classic, funny pony tale written and read by veteran horse-riding broadcaster Clare Balding. 
Charlie Bass is a horse-mad nine-year-old who dreams of owning her own pony. So when her eccentric parents announce that they are going to buy a racehorse, Charlie is thrilled.
The horse they buy, Noble Warrior, looks the part: strong, fit and healthy. There's just one problem – he won't gallop. In fact, he won't even trot round the field without his best friend, Percy, a naughty palomino pony, at his side.
But Charlie is convinced that Noble Warrior has what it takes to be a champion - he just needs the right motivation…
The Racehorse Who Disappeared
The second in Clare Balding’s animal adventure tales sees Charlie turn detective when her beloved horse disappears. 
Life is slowly getting back to normal for Charlie after her reluctant racehorse, Noble Warrior, won the Derby and saved her family from financial ruin. But drama soon returns to Folly Farm when thieves break into the farmyard in the dead of night and kidnap Noble Warrior! With the police baffled and no trace of the prizewinning thoroughbred to be found, Charlie launches her own investigation…
