I wrote the following about The Little White Horse when I read it a few years ago:
Two older works of YA fantasy, both of which have female protags with agency who are also depicted as fairly appropriately girly for the time and place in question, though I suspect politically they come from very different places, even if they are both about healing wrongs from the past: Naomi Mitchison's The Big House (1950), and Elizabeth Goudge's The Little White Horse (1946). Both good in their very different ways.

I too enjoyed the Pullein-Thompson pony books in my youth, but cannot recall which ones by which sister.
