Fourteen-year old Maddy Malcolmson has one great passion … riding her grey cob, Liath. Until Orlando Lewis, son of famous actress, Amanda Jane Lewis, arrives at her school. Orlando isn’t just stunningly good looking, he’s also a keen rider. Orlando, Maddy determines, must become ‘The Boyfriend Of My Dreams’.
But how can Maddy attract Orlando’s attention, when her greatest rival, Clarissa, also likes him? And, when Orlando’s fabulous horse, Bran, is to be stabled at Clarissa’s dad’s yard. There’s only one thing for it, Maddy reckons. She and Liath will perform so well in the arena that Orlando can’t fail to notice her. Liath must be groomed to perfection and jump like a star.
But, Maddy’s plan falls apart. Liath develops problems that will cost loads to resolve. Suddenly, the likelihood of losing her beloved horse looms large. Then, just as Maddy’s feeling most downhearted along comes a totally unexpected invitation to Amanda Jane’s Halloween bash. It’s here that life changes dramatically for Maddy and she begins to realise who her friends really are.
Set in the horsey world, and on the set of a famous TV series, Unintentional Dismount is a story about love and friendship between young teenagers.
