Review:
Great guidelines for setting riding goals, finding the right instructor, purchasing necessary clothing, etc. Most importantly, the book emphasizes safety, just like we do in Pony Club.
--Mary Pierson, US Pony Club's Director of Communications

Essential information about finding the perfect lesson program, outfitting your horse-crazed child for the sport, and making sure your young rider stays safe in the saddle. --Lesley Ward, Editor, Young Rider magazine

This book answers all the questions about what to do with a horse-crazy kid. Parents will find it full of practical advice that will be very helpful in learning about the horse world. --Judy Richter, author of Riding for Kids

Terrific guide for parents like myself who are trying to keep up with their horsecrazy kids. Covers just about everything [and] I love her approach to safety - no helmet, no horse. An excellent book. --horsecrazygirls.com

Grand Eagle Retail

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. Every parent hopes to experience the thrill of seeing a child discover an activity she loves, and then watching as that interest unfolds into a lifelong passion. But when a child adores horses above all, these joys are often dampened by anxiety, especially when the parent knows little about riding. The questions can be overwhelming: How does one begin to find a qualified riding instructor? Just how expensive is this hobby? And most important will my child be safe? Parents searching for answers will find relief in "A Parent 's Guide to Riding Lessons," by Elise Gaston Chand. A former horse-crazy child born to horse-clueless parents, Chand is today both an accomplished horsewoman and the mother of a horse-crazy daughter. Her vantage point allows her to get to the heart of parents concerns, then offer the information, instruction, and peace of mind that they desperately need. With its engaging "been there" voice, "A Parent 's Guide to Riding Lessons" combines the instant appeal of an impulse purchase with the practicality and depth of content of a thorough guide. Parents will snap up the book for its clear, reassuring voice, then refer back to it often for its quality answers and information. "A Parent 's Guide to Riding Lessons" gives busy parents an overview of horseback riding and lesson progression. It translates the strange language of horse enthusiasts, explains horse show etiquette, and addresses specific ways that parents can help children stay safe in and out of the barn. Along the way it offers practical advice, tips, and step-by-step guidance through an array of challenges that parents can expect to face. How does one begin to find a qualified riding instructor? Just how expensive is this hobby? And - most importantly - will my child be safe? This guide provides answers for these questions.
