This makes the series up to eleven, which delights at least one young teenager who begged to borrow my copy for 'They are all exciting and different .. really exciting things happen in them'. I'm afraid I just don't warm to the fanatical over statement of every horse's twitch, flaring of nostrils and canter and the reverential attention to the details of equestrian equipment. Why are the humans so secondary to the wretched creatures? Anyway, for the umpteen devotes everywhere, in this one a young man, Steve Duncan, produces a red stallion to challenge the Black, plunging all previous certainties into doubt. Naturally it all turns out well for the legendary super horse ... he's got to keep going for a few more books after all, hasn't he?
