    A Good Basic Guide for the Adult Rider

    This book covers every aspect of the physical and emotional needs of the adult rider. I felt it was sometimes too basic and for that reason would be perfect for the adult rider whom is buying or owning a horse for the first time with limited previous experience. The accomplished adult rider may find this book to general with no in-depth information. It is good all-around reading.
