Myrtle Ellen Green

Lesser known British author. Only wrote two pony books as far as I am aware, one of which is quite unusual in that it is an early example of a pony story featuring Riding for the Disabled.

I do not have any information on the author herself. If you know anything I would love to hear from you.

A PONY DOCTOR'S ORDERS
(LUTTERWORTH 1973)
There was also a German edition published.
SUMMARY: Early example of a story featuring the RDA (or its precursor). Slightly disabled Mick longs to ride. After a fall from an unsuitable pony, his parents forbid him to ride again. But a sensible doctor tells them it will be good exercise for Mick and explains that there are local groups which offer riding for disabled children. When Mick arrives at the local riding centre he falls in love with the beautiful Blue Dominion and is delighted when he is eventually allowed to ride him. But then his happiness is marred when he learns the stables may have to close. Can he and his fellow riders save it?
PONYMAD RATING: 3 HORSESHOES

THE PART-EXCHANGE PONY
(LUTTERWORTH 1975)

Collectors info:
These were published as hardbacks as part of the Crown Pony Library, as far as I know not reprinted in paperback. Fairly rare but usually not too expensive to buy. German readers may be able to pick up a copy of the German edition of A Pony Doctor's Orders, which is often the cheapest edition available.
