Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A beautifully illustrated guide to horse riding and care, with stunning full-color photographs from one of the world's leading equine photographers.Horse riding is one of the most popular sports in the world: it offers everything from the rush of adrenaline as horse and rider gallop across country, to the companionship and bonding that develops between them during grooming, feeding, and taking overall care of the horse.This book covers all aspects of the subject and is suitable for first-time riders as well as competition riders. Expert advice is given, often in the form of step-by-step instructions that, combined with high quality photographs and illustrations, make The Horse Riding & Care Handbook the ultimate practical guide for every rider. (8 1/2 x 11, 160 pages, color photos, color illustrations) Bernadette Faurie is one of the world's leading equestrian writers. She was voted Journalist of the Year for 1997 by the International Dressage Trainers Club, and is a major contributor to the monthly magazines Horse and Rider, Dressage, and Show Jumping.

Synopsis:

A richly illustrated guide, with stunning full-color photos from one of the world's leading equine photographers. Includes history, horse development, and breed identification, including practical advice for the novice.

Synopsis:

"The Horse Riding and Care Handbook" is filled with advice and information that will be of use and interest to both the novice and the experienced rider. Beginning riders will learn what equipment is necessary for both the horse (bridles, bits, and saddles) and rider (hats, gloves, and boots), and what to look for in a school and riding. Intermediate riders will learn how to move from the confines of the school into open-country riding (hills, riding through water, long-distance riding, and handling falls). For the more advanced rider, there is thorough information on competitive riding, including dressage, show jumping, eventing, and endurance riding.
