Publisher's Summary

Puffin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of The Racehorse Who Wouldn't Gallop, written and read by Clare Balding.

Charlie Bass is a horse-mad nine-year-old who dreams of owning her own pony. So when her eccentric parents announce that they are going to buy a racehorse, Charlie is thrilled.

The horse they buy, Noble Warrior, looks the part: strong, fit and healthy. There's just one problem - he won't gallop. In fact he won't even trot round the field without his best friend, Percy, a naughty palomino pony, at his side. But Charlie is convinced that Noble Warrior has what it takes to be a champion - he just needs the right motivation....

A classic, funny animal story perfect for fans of Dick King-Smith and My Family and Other Animals.

    "Surprise"

    I bought this book after hearing Claire talk about it on the radio, a children's book I thought but could be OK. Well, what a surprise! It was wonderful, the story is brilliant making me (a grown woman of rather mature years) laugh and cry in equal measure. Claire is fabulous as the narrator and her joy in her writing as well as her knowledge shines through. If you want a good time read, whether you love horses, dogs , cows or not, this is most definitely one to listen too.
