“Eating the blackberries,

purple and plump,

picking out tree trunks

for scratching the rump…”

‘The Cornish Stories’ are a series of picture books featuring real-life ex-racehorse Baz and his three Dartmoor pony sisters.

“There goes the starter

and off he must run – 

chasing and chasing,

the race has begun.”


‘Blackberries aren’t that scary’ is the first in the series and follows Baz’s life from racetrack to hedgerows and fields. Written in a fun clip-clop rhyme, it’s easy to read aloud. 

‘Hoofbeats in the Moonlight’ is the second book, and this time readers are whisked away on an adventure to Bodmin Moor. Fast-paced and fun, readers are barrelled along with Baz and his Dartmoor Pony sisters. 

The books are perfect for children ages 4+ or anyone with a horse obsession.
