“Lindy does her best to help her friend Mr Kirby and his white carriage horse
Pie when they are out of work, out of a place to stay, and out of money during
a cold, snowy Christmas in New York.”




Gerry Turner wrote five books, amongst which was the horse book Hide-out for a Horse. Set in New York, it is the story of a girl’s attempt to hide the carriage horse Pie when he no longer has anywhere to live.


Finding the book: the book is easy to find in the USA. The UK printing is harder to locate, but not impossible.
