Dear Emma & Haley
I cried a little myself when I wrote THE LAST PONY RIDE. In my imagination
I had lived in Wiggins with Pam, Anna, and Lulu and their wonderful
ponies for ten years. It felt like I was saying goodbye to good
I am very excited about the game … when every Pony Pal can
have a pony and write with Pam, Anna, and Lulu.
Hoping all is well with you,
BETANCOURT: I love the Pony Pals books! I wonder if I can write
a story like those. Did you write the Pony Pals, because you always
wanted a pony? I hope you write back
As a kid I spent a lot of time on my neighbor's farm. I loved the
big animals and wished I could ride the horses. But they were mostly
for farm work and the farmers were much too busy farming to teach
me how to ride. One girl I knew had her own horse. I got to sit
on that horse a couple of times. I never really rode her. I would
visit that horse and dream of having one myself, or at least riding
one. I did get to take riding lessons one summer at camp and loved
it. I only rode a couple of times after that.
I remembered that longing to have a horse when my editor at Scholastic
asked me if I would like to write a series of six books about girls
and their ponies. I immediately said, "Yes!" Three girls
on three ponies, I thought, can have loads of adventures. I also
liked the idea of writing six books about the same characters. My
editor and I never dreamed that ten years later there would be forty-four
books about the Pony Pals. If I had known I might not have decided
to put the word "pony" in every title. It wasn't so hard
to do for the first six books, but using "pony" in the
next thirty-eight titles was a challenge.
Over the years I have spent a lot of time doing research for the
Pony Pals. I met great kids and wonderful ponies at homes, farms,
and riding schools. Some of my ideas for Pony Pal adventures came
from some of these visits. I was also inspired by reading about
ponies and horses and learning how to ride myself.
I hope you enjoy reading the adventures of Pam, Anna, Lulu, Lightning,
Acorn, and Snow White. I also hope you will have plenty of adventures
of your own, with or without a pony.
I am a big fan of the pony pals. I only have about four books
but i will get more. I am only 10 years old but i would like to
be apart of the pony pals.
thank you write you back soon
