The first in a series inspired by true stories from Kelly Wilson's horse-crazy childhood. Let the adventure begin . . . taming a wild pony!

When nine-year-old Vicki Wilson's beloved lease pony is sold, she is heartbroken. Her family doesn't have much money, and she is desperate to have a pony of her own so she can keep riding. Then Vicki has the chance she has been waiting for, to tame and train her own wild pony! How will she earn the trust of her beautiful new chestnut? And will Dandy ever be quiet enough for her to ride at Pony Club or compete at Ribbon Days? This story is inspired by the Wilson Sisters' early years, where Vicki, Kelly and Amanda Wilson first encounter horses in the wild and learn what it takes to make them champions.
