Product Description

Product Description

Entertains pony-mad youngsters with a fun-filled mixture of riding tips, horse-care hints, celebrity features, pen-pal pges, contests and three or more beautiful color posters. Aimed at horse-owning pre-teens, and horse-less riding school kids, the magazine's goal is to teach young people how to look after their horses properly and how to improve their riding skills safely.

Amazon.com Review

Young Rider magazine is the ultimate publication for younger horse enthusiasts. Every issue features articles from some of the top names in the field, and the issues use larger pictures and typefaces that make the articles easy for younger people to read. From tips on working with horses to articles submitted by readers, the magazine provides a wealth of information.

Young Rider magazine contains a Pony Pen Pals section, which lets readers create their own pen pal ads with information that lets others write back to them. Readers can also write in with their own questions and concerns, which a professional will answer in the Horse and Pony Problems section. The magazine also contains a section maintained by a professional veterinarian, who responds to questions about the health of horses.

Younger readers will find that many of the articles and features contain helpful information, including the Short Story section. Each story ends with the main character learning a valuable lesson, which you can carry with you when you hit the stable. Every issue includes information on both English and Western riding to appeal to all readers. You will find feature articles devoted to summer jobs for horse lovers, camps for pony enthusiasts, tips on traveling with your horse, and advice on picking the right saddle or horse.

A subscription to Young Rider magazine will let you explore the world of horses year-round and find tips on working with your horse, whether you ride for fun or enter your horse in competitions and shows.

I received a subscription of this magazine for one year, and although it has its good points, there were enough bad points to cause me not to renew. The magazine has tons of beautiful, full color posters of beautiful horses and ponies. I really enjoyed the quizzes and short stories, as well as some of the features. But my problem with this magazine was that it seems to lean towards the well-to-do little girls riding Welsh Ponies that are trained to show every weekend. I haven't read an issue yet that didn't contain an article about 'winning lots of ribbons in shows.' There is no focus on the other side of horsemanship: caring for your horse, keeping up your stable, and health care. It is simply assumed the 'young riders' will hand their lovely ponies away to their grooms and saunter off to hang their ribbons on the walls of their bedrooms, which will, presumably, also have the mega posters featured in each issue of the magazine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Contest-Lover April 17, 2002
By A Customer
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I love Young Rider magazine! Anything you ever wanted to know about horses and ponies is in this magazine. There are a lot of contests, usually about five to six per magazine, that you can participate in. The best part for me is that you don't have to be "18 or older to enter". I enter every contest I can, and Young Rider is my best opportunity for contests. Plus, the prizes are great, even if you don't own a horse! You can even send a letter and get a penpal! I don't have a horse, but I love this magazine anyway, and it's always good to know about horses in case you ever drive by one. You'll know to slow down instead of just zooming by. You can learn the names of parts of the horse and equipment, as well as getting introduced to books and authors who have written books about horses and ponies. The only bad part is waiting for the next issue to come in the mail. All in all, this is a great magazine that I encourage anyone who likes horses to get!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good when I was younger... November 23, 2004
A Kid's Review
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I am now 11 and i dont read young rider anymore. The writing is to easy and usually has some mistakes. It is slanted toward little girls with their $20,000 ponies who go to shows every weekend. For older readers I suggest Horse Illustrated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good - for a while December 17, 2004
A Kid's Review
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I'm thirteen and first got this magazine for my twelfth birthday. I did not own a horse at the time (still don't, looking for one and in a lease with my trainer and her 3 yr old pony), but instead took lessons as often as I could, and came out every time I could beg a ride to the barn. It was great! - at first. A lot of the exercises I couldn't necessarily do - lunging was hard enough to find the time to do let alone some of the other things they talked about. But they have good stories - predictable if anything and excellent posters (my walls bear testimony to this). Also some stoires are useful (like dealing with spooky horses, different types of illnesses). While this is PREDOMINANTLY addressed to ten year old competitive hunters with their own $50,000 pony, I am looking for one less than $3000, am competitive but not very, and hope to not get a pony - experience tells me so. And still some of the advice they give is great. And yes, THEY DO WESTERN and I've seen them do bareback once or twice. They also do quick 'seasonals' the latest issue was about twenty pages thicker all with equestrian Olympic events and pics.

So join it - almost something is bound to catch your eye with an article, posters are excellent and their classifieds are helpful although not specific to Maryland my state, it's more of a nationwide, and NOT so specific.

Overall, friendly and worth da money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great for the beginner November 17, 2003
A Kid's Review
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Young Rider is a great magazine for the beginner- the articles are very simple and easy to understand. They have great posters, but there's usually an article on their backside. There are ads lining almost every page; there isn't nearly as much content as there used to be. The average YR magazine has about 60 pages/9 articles, which usually have half-page pictures. I'd reccomend a magazine such as Practical Horseman or Horse Illustrated for anyone over 13. But, for a young horselover, it's a very helpful resource. There's several pages displaying readers' pictures and stories, along with a few step-by-step articles. Things like coloring and markings are discussed in detail, and many famous events (like the Rolex Kentucky) are reported on. For the completely new English and Western rider, it would make a great gift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love This Magazine! April 18, 2004
Subscription Term Name:1 year
My 6 year old horse-loving daughter adores this magazine! She can read the articles and stories--they are well written and interesting and not too old for her, and she loves the games, quizzes and, of course, the pictures! She likes it so well we are going to get her a subscription of her own, as we have been having trouble finding it in the horse stores. It is wonderful someone makes a great magazine for the younger horse-lovers!
