The young lad with the mop of gold curls watched her ride up to him. He couldn’t speak, the lump in his throat was enormous and tears shone in his blue eyes as he gazed at the exquisite pony and the beautiful girl in her side saddle habit. He remembered the very first time he had seen her six years ago sitting in the garden at Honeysuckle Cottage in her wheel chair. He had caught her in his arms as she had tried to walk to his little black pony Twinkletoes.
“My name is Samantha” she had told him” but my friends all call me Sam.”
He had smiled at her “Could I be your special friend and call you Sammy?” he had asked her.
She had given him her ravishing smile and told him “Yes but I shall call you Tommy and you are my Prince Charming!” and it was at that very moment that eight year old Tom West‘s heart had fallen at her feet.
“I shall teach you to walk and to ride and one day we shall dance together” he had vowed and that was the start of Tom’s journey with the little black pony his father John had bought for him instead of the washing machine he had promised his beautiful wife Mary.
But for Tom life was to change for ever the day he met Charles Wright-Smith the famous International show jumper who had just moved to Lake House next door to Tom’s home Old Tiles Farm with his wife Miranda and his daughter and son Eva and Justin but most importantly of all The Likely Lad had moved there as well.
