'The Lonely Pony is the story of a horse named Scout that didn’t grow tall enough to be included in big competitions that he was bred for.
'He lives in a paddock at Amberfield Park as a companion for the horses that come and go for training. He doesn’t allow himself to get close with these visitors as he has learnt that if they have become friends, he misses their company even more when they leave. Imagine not having any friends! Scout yearns to have someone to call his own to love and to love him back. His days are the same with no hope of change until Lena starts working on the property as a stable hand after school.
'Lena, recovering from a bad riding accident, is regaining her confidence by working at the stables in exchange for riding lessons. After meeting Scout, she recognises a kindred spirit and they begin training together, overcoming obstacles and forming a trusting bond. As Scout’s schooling progresses his world opens up. His adventures include a bush trail ride, a trip to the beach and his first competition. But something is still missing. Could there be a brighter future for him after all? Dare he hope that his greatest wish is granted – having friends and a loving family of his own?'
