From the Back Cover
This book is written and illustrated for youngsters who want to learn to ride, especially those who are members of the U.S. Pony Clubs, Inc. and want to meet the USPC's Standards of Proficiency. If you are that youngster, you will be able to read this book on your own. It will show you how to become a careful, thoughtful rider and how to communicate with and understand your pony. Some sections, however, are meant to be read by an adult (a parent or riding instructor), so you can get the extra help you may need to reach your goals. By the time you have read this book you will know a lot about:
- riding in a ring and in the open
- beginning jumping
- pony care and handling
- having fun and meeting challenges

I really thought this book was great in a kids point of view. I have learned more from just reading a book in my own home instead of being around horses!Published on April 11 1999
A great overview for the young rider. Summarizes the crucial facts in horse ownership/riding, without much extraneous prose. Plus has great diagrams.Published on Jan. 16 1999 by firstname.lastname@example.org
