PBOTD 28th December: Judith M Berrisford - Sue's Circus Horse

The next little section of pony books are all on pantomimes and circuses. Circuses tend not to be the sort of thing you do now after Christmas, but they were extremely popular in the 1950s and 1960s, and were often advertised in PONY Magazine.

Sue's Circus Horse is a very early Judith M Berrisford - the second. In it, heroine Sue buys the beautiful cream mare Ballita from the circus. Ballita is of course trained for the circus, and not as a riding pony, and this causes poor Sue all sorts of bother.
