I thought this was a terrific book, the person that wrote it obviously knows a great deal about horses and the people who ride them.I would certainly take any advice she gives as the honest truth She seems to be able to think as a horse would, which is a very rare gift indeed I think even I could learn to ride a horse from this person I am an idiot on a computer, and I have purchased books that say Computing for Idiots and I don t understand a word as they still use the computer Jargon This book is written in plain English and mad complete sense to me. This is a great book to give yourself a start if your at all interested in horses and riding and it works for all ages Not only are the basics of the variety of riding available, there are links to all the major groups of horse organizations so you can dig deeper on your own It is written in a concise manor, in a very easy to read length yet touches on all the major things you would need to be aware of Shelly Ingram also has a gentle sense of humor that slips in every now and again making the reading not only quick and easy but a pleasure She warns the reader about the BIG things that you might not be thinking about in your eagerness to get to riding As a person who has ridden all my life, I love how she pulls all that knowledge together simply for a newbie to absorb The glossary in the back should answer a lot of questions as you read and go huh about a sentence you don t understand because of the horse language used to describe something Such as what IS a diagonal The author also mentions something very near and dear to my heart Learn to be a HORSEMAN, not just a passenger on your mount This is a huge point and can lead you to a much rewarding horse experience than just riding one I think this book is a wonderful overview that anyone can understand and once read, can go forth with a better idea of exactly the best way to move forward with your dream If you listen and follow her advice, you will surely miss a LOT of the pitfalls that most of us have had to learn the hard way.

I have no familiarity with horses or riding, but a niece of mine is to begin riding lessons soon, and I wanted her to have a concise readable book on horsemanship I found one in The Complete Guide to Horsemanship, by Shelly Ingram The information is wide ranging, yet detailed,written in an easygoing style, by an accomplished rider and teacher I was struck by Ms Ingram s love and respect for horses, and her concern for the safety of the new rider I heartily recommend this book for all new riders, and their teachers.. My husband and I give riding lessons to many riders that are new, some young and some that have finally had the time and resources to pursue a childhood dream One book that I suggest they read and often give them one of my copies is Riding Logic Now I have this great resource that Shelly Ingram has written to add to their list of text to absorb Shelly brings to this publication her no nonsense approach to horsemanship Thank you for taking a subject and making it so easy for the beginner to understand.
