Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Beginners wondering what mental traits a good rider should acquire (emotional stability, a good ego, etc.) or what to eat (avoid sugar, caffeine, alcohol while riding) may appreciate this book. Hill, a breeder and trainer, covers basics from using sunscreen to taking a scarf when it is cold. Her riding tips are sound and should interest the beginner, but much of what she covers is common sense. An optional purchase.-- Joanne K. Hammond, J. Frank Faust Junior High Sch. Lib., Chambersburg, Pa.
