Learning to Ride

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This guidebook provides general information about how to ride a horse. The subjects include getting on and off the horse, jumping, hacking, and more. Many photos and drawings help explain the subjects, such as how to sit in the saddle and how to use natural aids to direct the horse. Question and answer boxes throughout provide information relevant to the particular chapter. Small "horse diary" sections are also included, which look like a handwritten page in a journal, and describe an experience of the diary's writer. These, however, add little solid information to the book. The correct and incorrect aspects of horse care have check marks and Xs next to the illustrations, such as how to hold the reins. A quiz at the end provides a good way to review the book's information and also lists two places to get more information about horses. A glossary and a thorough index follow the quiz page. Overall, this book is helpful in describing the ways to ride a horse, whether it is for fun or competition, and is appropriate for new riders. The information is easy to understand and covers a broad range of riding techniques. This is part of the "Me and My Horse" series that also includes the title Caring For My Horse. 2002, Copper Beech Books,
