Good - for a while,
A Kid's Review
This review is from: Young Rider (Magazine)
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.
