A well-written story about the Horsemasters program then in place in better English schools. (I have no idea if the program still exists) The story concerns an American girl who has come to earn her Horsemasters certificate. The strict regimen, the internal "politics" always present in adolescent society, the love that develops between horse and rider - all struck a deep chord with me. I never owned a horse myself, but like most pre-teen girls I dreamed of it. ( )
