Sophie Groves feels that it is her duty to warn all girls that horses are more than just a riding fantasy. She is always pestered by the girl that thinks she is so lucky because she owns three horses, and can that girl ride one of them? Sophie knows the truth about her horses though. Really is should actually be named Really Mean, Sweetheart is just that, a sweetheart, in the ring, but if you leave the ring watch out for tree branches. Fancy Free is the largest horse Sophie has ever seen with pie pan feet and no brain. Sophie becomes well aware of all the attributes of each horse be the negative or positive. She also will not enter the ring for anything. This is a funny book about a girl who grows up with eyes wide open and learns a lot about life through avoiding her horses as much as possible and ends up loving them.
