The second part of the famous 'Quireme' trilogy featuring Lady Isabel Dysart
Incarcerated in the stables of Princess Karina's Palace are the pony girls. Each has their own stall and their own trainers. Each is locked in a world of misery and virtual silence, for they are not allowed to speak and must act, eat, move and live as ponies, in and out of harness.
Here, in personal narrative style, are the stories of the trainers, their drivers and the pony girls themselves. They are trained to race and indeed are raced hard, pushed to the limit for their owner, for prestige and to win large bets.
And at the end of their six month stint in the stables, the pony girls are returned to the Harem of the Princess for a different kind of slavery!
