Riding Instruction

Teaching the Child Rider


Teaching the Child Rider, by Pamela Roberts
From England comes this charming manual for teaching children to ride. It is intended for three categories of reader: the trainee riding instructor, the non-horsey parent whose child is clamoring for riding lessons, and the parent in a horse-owning family who is looking for help teaching her own offspring. She relates some humorous experiences of her own in teaching children, such as the French child who wanted to ride under an umbrella during a rainstorm or the boy who didn’t know to duck when riding under a low branch and wound up dangling from the tree limb. Line drawings - often amusing - are interspersed with color photos for illustration purposes. Fun to read and full of sage advice as well. Revised and enlarged edition.
