Josephine Pullein-Thompson is one of the best, and most popular of pony book authors. She continued to publish books into the 1990s, having started with It Began With Picotee, which she wrote with her sisters, Christine and Diana. Writing must have seemed normal to the Pullein-Thompsons: their mother, Joanna Cannan, was a noted writer who wrote some of the very earliest pony books, as well as some notable detective and adult fiction. The Pullein-Thompsons started writing at an early age, and went on to run their own riding school. They were heavily influenced by Henry Wynmalen's Equitation, and taught, and wrote about, a kinder and more horse-centred form of riding, moving away from the twin evils of the "good hunting seat" and the backward seat whilst jumping.
