Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Sandy Ransford's Kingfisher Riding Club Horses & Ponies is a superbly illustrated introduction for young readers to horses and ponies which is as informative as it is fascinating. Youngsters new to the animals are shown all aspects on approaching, caring for, exercises, breeding, and riding the equine companions. For more experienced young riders there is a wealth of practical and insightful information on pony shows, dressage and eventing. For those who own or have access to a horse or pony (and for those who dream of having their own mount one day), then Kingfisher Riding Club Horses & Ponies is very essential and highly entertaining reading.
