Leslie Baird

American author. As far as I know wrote just the one book which, despite the unusual title, is a traditional pony story. It does seem to have been something of a favourite of many American readers.

Horse and Pony Books:

((DODD MEAD [USA] 1973)
SUMMARY: Throughout a summer of riding lessons, Terry starts to become attached to the horse assigned to her.

Collector's Info:
Although not that rare in the USA, it can be quite expensive to buy. Never published in the UK and hard to find outside of America.
