Book Description

4 Jun 1992
The horse is the transport of the future. In a few short years, the internal combustion engine will be as obsolete as the hot-air balloon, and when that day comes, woe betide those who haven't learned how to get into a saddle - and studied the art of staying there, at Thelwell's Riding Academy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A British cartoonist looks at learning to ride a pony 29 Dec 1998
By - Published on
This is one of my favorite books from childhood. A tongue-in-cheek riding instruction manual, it is filled with cartoons about the antics of girls and their sometimes-naughty ponies. Add subtle British humor to the mix, and it's a must for girls in that "horsey" stage . . . my 10-year-old adores it!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best How To, and, What To Expect for beginner riders 10 Dec 1999
By Percy Keith - Published on
I was truly blessed at an early age to have this and Gymkhana in my room when I first began to ride. This is a marvelous and loving look at children and horseback riding. Any parent with a child, particularly a daughter, beginning Enlgish riding instruction ought to make every effort to find this book. Like my tattered copy, it will become an heirloom. PCK, NJ.
