Review: Reviewed by Jane Finch for Readers’ Favorite
Horses & Ponies Activity Book: Introduction to Horses & Horseback Riding by Susan DiFelice is a comprehensive all-purpose book that any horse lover will find invaluable. As well as the informative pages which explain about colour, size, type and breed of horse, and the difference between a horse and a pony, there are helpful activities that help the young rider, or the horse enthusiast, to learn about the bridle and saddle and their components and uses. Added to this is learning the correct way to groom, the types of grooming aids and how to use them, and ultimately everything that is needed in the care of a horse. This is a perfect activity book combined with lots of helpful information about caring for a horse. The activities are exciting yet have a purpose as they help the reader to identify the different types of horses and ponies. There really is nothing left out of this activity book which could almost be described as a handbook which also has fun activities to carry out. Many years ago I kept horses and I have to say I learned quite a bit from this book. The illustrations are colourful and not too complicated, so they are easy to follow, and the information is set out in a concise yet clear manner. Thankfully the answers are included at the end of the book which is where I found out I didn’t know as much about horses as I thought I did. So it follows that although this activity book is really geared to young riders and horse lovers, it also contains useful information for the grown-ups too.
