An authoritative instruction manual as well as a companion volume to the highly respected British Horse Society Complete Horse and Pony Care, this lavishly illustrated book tells beginning equestrians everything they need to know about riding and horsemanship. Experienced riders will also value the author's many tips and hints on ways to improve their riding skills. Approximately 400 color photos include many step-by-step instructional sequences that clearly demonstrate jumping, cantering, and other fundamental riding techniques. The author, one of England's leading equestrians, covers every important aspect of horsemanship, including--

Selecting a riding school and preparing to ride The first lesson: learning the basics Learning to walk, halt, trot, and canter Refining one's riding skills What if something goes wrong? Basic stable management . . . and much more

This book makes a fine instruction manual when used alone, but is even better when paired with the above-cited British Horse Society Complete Horse and Pony Care, also available from Barron's.
