This from one horse lover to another is a friendly, chatty, intimate sort of book in which a famous riding teacher tells of her personal experiences with beloved pets, horses and ponies she has known, people who've sold them, people who've cared for them and trained them, riders -- both novices and experts, and so on. Advice is generously interlarded on riding etiquette, buying a horse, trail riding, hunting, jumping. The purpose of the book is admirably achieved to give readers who love horses a more sensitive understanding, as well as further technical knowledge. A rare book, brimming over with the author's contagious love of her subject. Its content- plus her reputation insure a wide and continued sale and reading interest.
