From the Back Cover
Written and illustrated specifically for the youngest members of Pony Club, this manual helps you learn the basics and meet the USPC's Standards of Proficiency.
This classic guide shows you how to become a careful, thoughtful rider and how to communicate with and understand your horse. By the time you've completed this book you'll know a lot about riding in a ring and in the open, beginning jumping, horse care and handling, safety, having fun and meeting challenges, and much more.
If you're a beginning rider, parent, or instructor, The United States Pony Club Manual of Horsemanship is a solid source of instruction, regardless of whether or not a Pony Club chapter is available locally.
