Priscilla D Willis, who also wrote as Mary Scott Adams, wrote three horse books. The first two books are about Alfred and his horse The Saint; the third, as far as I know, is about different characters.
Finding the books:all the books are reasonably easy to find in the US though are generally ex-library. The books weren’t published in the UK.
