Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-8 - For kids who have ever wondered if there is a certain color that complements their horse more than another, what last-minute checks they need to do before entering a show ring, how to dress for success, and much more, this handbook is invaluable. Presenting a wealth of information in a well-organized and enthusiastic manner, the author also addresses the more serious issues such as safety and good sportsmanship. The format is appealing, with lots of colorful photos of young people engaged in riding activities. Both Western and English riding are shown. Amusing cartoon illustrations are interspersed throughout, and a one-page "Show Story" in each chapter describes the relevant experience of an individual rider. For example, in "Moving Up," Jill has to decide what she wants to do with her horse now that she has taken up jumping. This volume is a treasure trove for anyone interested in showing. The advice it contains is ageless and the attractive layout and appealing pictures make it a blue-ribbon winner. - Carol Schene, Taunton Public Schools, MA

Great for GIRLS Jan. 2 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was interested in the book for my elementary-aged boy who is just learning to show--thank goodness we checked it out from the library first. This book has a lot of good basic information on horse shows and how to participate. While the information presented is generally gender-neutral, the book as a whole is not. The pictures almost all feature girls, the Show Story vignettes are all about girls, even the type and background colors struck my son as "girlie". This would probably be an interesting and useful book to most young equestrians--I wish they'd presented the information in a way that appealed to girls AND boys.

I absolutely love this book Sept. 24 2014
By Naomi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I absolutely love this book! The writer Cheryl Kimball has a really enjoyable way of writing, so it doesn't bore me as some riding books can.
I love reading the show stories. One of them talks about how I can improve by watching a different discipline than mine.

The book includes a checklist with what to pack for an event which is wonderful to have, so that I can stay organized and be ready when I get to the event. The show diaries are great for keeping track of what classes I did and how well I did in them, so I can look back and see how much I've improved.

I've learned a great deal about showing from this book: how to prepare for shows, suggestions to control my pre-class jitters, and all the different disciplines I can do. Overall a great book and I highly recommend it :).

Horse Showing for Kids - Very Good Teaching Tool Jan. 28 2008
By S. Bonner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I work with a local 4-H club that has members that show western, english, dressage and playday, I have found that the principals in this book apply to all. It asks questions of the youth that involve them, as they should be, beyond just going to a show.

We are using this book and its worksheets in our horse event projects.
