Breeding identification, riding techniques, and the proper care for tending to horses are elements of a comprehensive guide about horses and ponies, complete with sidebars, full color photos, helpful tips, and more. The Kingfisher Illustrated Horse and Pony Encyclopedia is a fantastic gift for children who dream of having a horse or pony of their own. There is a clear introduction to the horse followed by chapters explaining horse and pony care, riding lessons, and breeds. The encyclopedia is packed full of gorgeous photographs of horses and ponies showing how they look, what they do, and where in the world they are found. And of course every horse lover wants to ride, and The Kingfisher Illustrated Horse & Pony Encyclopedia takes the novice rider from first mount to cantering and galloping.
