In her first book, Denna Johnson calmly escorts parents through the often-bewildering world of horseback riding lessons and horse showing. Beginning with their first step onto a horse farm, parents are led step by step, from what to look for in a training barn, to safely working with horses and enrolling their child in lessons.
The book continues through lesson progression and introduces the different types of horse shows and competition levels. This book is a great reference for all aspects of the lesson and showing experience and covers specifics concerning attire, mental and physical readiness of a rider and eventually horse ownership.
