    School Library Journal K-Gr 3-With a format that is appealing and well organized, this informative guide covers the basics about horses and ponies, including physical characteristics, care and feeding, grooming, and stabling. My First Horse and Pony Book by Judith Draper and Matthew Roberts provides a solid foundation in the first principles of horse and pony management and an exciting introduction to the world of riding.

    Horseback riding also helps you develop specific muscle groups that are not worked regularly in other sports In the horse world, your success is determined by how well you can control, understand and harmonize with a 1,pound animal that has superior strength, is faster and has a better-developed nervous system than you. Western riding and trail riding are also explored in some detail. At that time, the Shetland Pony became the first pony to have a breed society of its own. Some topics expand beyond that depending on where significant events involving horses occurred.
