For you to enjoy me (and for me to enjoy you, too) there are some important facts about me which you should know before you try to handle or ride me.

“I am a Horse. My name in Latin is Equus. From this name comes the word ‘equine’ which means something to do with a horse, and the word ‘equestrian,’ which means one who rides a horse.”

With this, Happy Horsemanship starts you and your child on a most wonderful journey. Told from the point of view of the horse, this little gem introduces every aspect of riding and caring for horses—from body to mind, from tack to riding position.
