Horse & Pony Shows & EventsBook - 2000
After lots of hard work, a rider gets to compete. No matter the level of competition, successful competing depends on preparation. Here, young riders learn about building a winning relationship with their mount. The various types of competitions are discussed -- dressage, endurance, showing and eventing -- plus how to get rider and horse fit to compete. Clothes, tack, grooming and the "ins and outs" of shows are discussed. Safety is stressed throughout, as is having fun while competing.
