Description of this Book

In the seventh Showtym Adventure, it's a race against time for Vicki to find and train a brand new pony for the show season. Should she go for experience, or for potential? When Vicki's multi-champion pony is injured, she is devastated. Just weeks before the first show of the season the 14-year-old must find a replacement - but no pony comes close to the one she has lost. Then Vicki sees beautiful and inexperienced Jackamo. She senses he has star quality, and chooses him over proven ponies with years of show-ring success. With so little time, will she be able to transform Jackamo into a winner? Or has she risked everything on the wrong pony? In a turn of events they didn't see coming, Vicki, Kelly and Amanda face heartbreak and difficult decisions about the future in this story inspired by the Wilson Sisters' early years.
