Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-8--This refreshingly uncluttered book offers a thorough introduction to horsemanship. Richter's enthusiastic tone conveys a love for horses that is nonetheless tempered with strict adherence to and promotion of important safety practices. In five chapters, she covers stable care, equipment, tack, clothing, longeing, lessons, jumping, and showing. The author's strong focus on good horsemanship is appropriately central to the text while the conversational, upbeat writing avoids any hint of condescension to young readers. The full-color photographs and black-and-white illustrations extend readers' understanding of the concepts being discussed. The cast of young riders, however, excludes minority representation. Contact information for several relevant organizations is included. This approachable, inviting volume successfully covers a number of topics that other authors often break into numerous volumes. If your budget allows for only one book, this is it.--Lisa Falk, Los Angeles Public Library

From Booklist

Gr. 3-5. Beginning equestrians will appreciate this comprehensive guide. The first of five chapters introduces gear, vocabulary, and basics such as grooming, mounting, and dismounting. Richter then goes on to cover cantering, turning, and so on and provide step-by-step jumping instructions, information on how to prepare for a competition, and other organized activities for young riders. Numerous color photographs (almost always of young females) will get readers excited about the sport and also help illustrate the topics. Occasional black-and-white drawings and diagrams are also useful, as are boxed insets--for example, the "Horse Talk" vocabulary feature that heads each section. Granted, there's no shortage of information on this topic, but libraries needing more will find this both well written and handsomely illustrated. A glossary and a bibliography are appended.

Riding For Kids by equestrian expert Judy Richter is an information-packed and practical introduction for children to the pastime and skill of horseback riding. Individual chapters explain in clear "reader friendly" language the basics of stable care, tack, appropriate riding clothing, riding basics, jumping and showing, and more. Enhanced with a profusion of color photography, Riding For Kids is an absolute "must-read" for any young person interested in owning or learning to ride a horse.

I bought this book for my daughter. She started riding just over a year ago and we wanted her to have something to give her more background at home.

It was also a bit of a preparation for her, as we were getting her a horse. She found it easy to read and to follow and refers to it often if she needs clarification on something or just wants a refresher.

The book is well written and has clear pictures.

I bought this book for my 3 year old granddaughter who is obsessed with anything to do with horses. She has just started riding and it's great for her parents to read with her so that she can learn all about taking care of horses, the equipment and most anything else she needs to learn about riding. The pictures are colorful and the information is easy for even a 3-4 year old to comprehend. Great book for kids who want to learn all about care and riding of horses!
