Follow Nina and her sister Lily as they save two wild Kaimanawa ponies and tame them in a month-long challenge!
Can Nina tame a wild Kaimanawa colt from wild to mild?
Ever since she helped Kelly Wilson train a wild Brumby, twelve-year-old Nina has dreamed of taming a wild pony of her very own. When she learns that 300 of New Zealand's wild horses face slaughter in an upcoming muster, she and her sister Lily sign up for the Wild Kaimanawa Workshop to tame a colt each - in just one month - and bring it home.
From Kentucky, USA, to wild New Zealand beaches, the girls embark on an exciting challenge. Only one will get the colt they hope for, and the other will star in a television show documenting the wild horses' journey. Which will it be?
From the author of the bestselling Showtym Adventures series, the second novel in the Wilson Sisters Adventures follows Kelly Wilson and Nina Sutherland's experiences with wild horses, and is inspired by true events.
