PBOTD 23rd May: Catherine Harris - The Heronsbrook Gymkhana
The Heronsbrook Gymkhana (1964) is Catherine Harris' last pony book (at least as far as I know). She moved away from the family whose madcap adventures had careered through her earlier books, the Marshams. Perhaps she felt, with maturity, that an insistence on dash and headlong adventure were best avoided. The Heronsbrook Gymkhana is much more domestic in scale, but it is her best book.
