PONIES AND RIDERS by Mrs. Victor Hurst


Email this review


Another import- dealing with a phase of riding that is more British than American, but containing much sound basic data applicable to beginning riding on horses as well as ponies. Starting with a brief historical background and advice on selection of mounts, Mrs. Hurst goes on to wise advice on care of ponies, including treatment of minor ailments, to the rights and wrongs of saddling and bridling, to questions of style in riding habits, and so on. Then comes step by step instruction on training ponies, on country riding, on hunting, on showing, on point to point, gymkhanas, and so on. The final section is unique so far as I know, and deals with riding camps and tours, and the formation of pony clubs.
