Description

"The Horse Riding and Care Handbook" is filled with advice and information that will be of use and interest to both the novice enthusiast and the experienced rider. Beginning riders will learn what equipment is necessary for both the horse (bridles, bits, and saddles) and rider (hats, gloves, and boots), and what to look for in a riding school and riding instructor. Intermediate riders will learn how to move from the confines of the school into open-country riding (hills, riding through water, long-distance riding, and handling falls). For the more advanced rider, there is thorough information on competitive riding, including dressage, show jumping, eventing, and endurance riding.Chapters cover the history and development of the horse, a look at the major riding breeds, and elementary riding skills -- as well as more advanced techniques. Also included is detailed information on tack and equipment for horse and rider, grooming, housing, and basic health care.Packed with stories behind top international rider-horse combinations on the world circuit today -- and with commentary by Moira Harris, editor of Horse Illustrated magazine -- "The Horse Riding and Care Handbook" is the perfect gift for everyone who's ever dreamed of riding and owning their own horse, and for every rider who aspires to improve their level of skill.show more
