There’s no denying that when I was a horse mad tween, I would have killed to have had a book like this to log my riding adventures in each week. In fact, it makes me want to dust off my riding boots and get back in the saddle, just so I can fill in all the fun activities and journal pages.

I absolutely love the weekly and monthly pages with lots of space to record your progress, illustrated with cute pictures, jokes and fun horsey facts. I was itching to dive in to the beautiful colouring pages and to try my hand at the fun activities that are featured throughout the book.

What is particularly great about this book is that it is completely gender neutral, a big step away from the abundance of pink pony books aimed solely at girls that you usually see. I wasn’t a particularly girly girl growing up, so the colour scheme of this book would have been right up my street, and I know it would have appealed to the boys that I rode with too.

If you have a pony crazy young person in your life, this book would make the perfect Christmas present, ready for them to log an entire year of riding fun in 2022.


Lexi Rees was born in Scotland but now lives down south where she’s slave to a carrot obsessed gelding, a frisky mare, a dog who’s convinced he’s not been fed in a month, and a house of hungry boys.

She writes action-packed adventures and fun activity books for children.

She wrote Horsing Around in response to a predominance of pink in the existing pony book market which her own son found off-putting.

She’s passionate about developing a love of reading and writing in children and, as well as her creative writing workbook, she has an active programme of school visits and other events, is a Book PenPal for three primary schools, and runs a free online #kidsclub and newsletter which includes book recommendations and creative writing activities.
