Reader Profile: Katherine Stokes

 

It was lovely to see a copy of Katy’s Pony Challenge on Christmas day, and I’m really enjoying reading it before I go back to uni.

I was about 10 when I met Katy for the first time in Victoria Eveleigh’s self-published version of Katy’s Wild Foal (which was called Katy’s Exmoor).

We bought it after going on horse-drawn tour with the Eveleighs’ beautiful Shire horses.

During our following holidays with the Eveleighs, in their self-catering cottage at West Ilkerton Farm, my sister Molly (who coincidentally shares Katy’s birthday on 1st April!) and I really felt like we grew up with Katy, envying her life on Exmoor and, of course, her ponies. Even though more years have passed for me than for her, I was delighted to catch up with Katy after all this time!
