The Pony Scouts are becoming better at riding with every lesson. But just when they think they've seen it all, a new horse arrives on Jill's farm--one who hasn't been ridden before! Taffy is a beautiful palomino pony that needs Jill's help. With a little patience and a lot of love, Jill and the Pony Scouts will make Taffy a member of the family.

This is the seventh title in the Pony Scouts I Can Read series, making learning to read a galloping good time.

Booklist Review: "Girls and horses continue to make popular bedfellows, as shown by this seventh entry in Hapka's Pony Scouts I Can Read series. When a new pony, Taffy, named for his color, arrives at the pony farm where Jill lives, she gets to help train him. But getting Taffy to understand her commands is harder than she thought. When Taffy bursts into a gallop, Jill is scared and overreacts by pulling back on the reins, but her mom quickly informs her about the right way to slow Taffy down. It's doubtful that taming a pony for riding is as easy as these few steps make it seem, but young equestrians won't mind one bit. The story succeeds in its goal of being a welcoming entry point to reading, while the illustrations ably depict the action and reactions. The final page features Pony Pointers, which define the words palomino, green, mounting, and gallop. No doubt, more galloping fun is to follow.--Cummins, Julie Copyright 2010 Booklist"
