In the shade of the Giant’s Throne Mountain, and on the coast of the Indian Ocean, Port St. Christopher is home to Apley Towers; a riding school for girls and boys, young or old, who learn what it means to be a true horse rider. Angela is forced to face up to her former bully, Gemma Larkin, when she finds out that she’s set to compete against Sagittarius Stables in an upcoming competition. With the support of Apley Towers, Angela is desperate to beat Gemma once and for all. But how can Angela prove herself to anyone else, if she can’t even convince herself? Luckily, the kodas are there to help her deal with a past she thought she’d left behind.
Apley Towers is a continuing twelve book horse and pony series set in South Africa. These coming of age stories have a strong focus on close friendships and are ideal for readers aged 11+. Shortlisted for the People’s Book Prize 2017.
