about

Unless you're familiar with the sport, you're probably intimidated! This practical book helps you get your child off to a positive start. It answers your questions, helps you avoid common pitfalls, shows you how to get your child into the saddle without saddling yourself with debt, and helps you ensure that your child has a rewarding, enjoyable experience. It takes you step by step from the initial "get acquainted" period through decisions and purchases you need to make as your child progresses, covering:

  • Sampling the sport, including package deals that give your child exposure without necessitating a commitment
  • Choosing a stable, riding style, instructor, and course of lessons
  • Comparison shopping to save on equipment and apparel
  • Proceeding through more advanced training
  • Participating in horse shows or other competitions
  • Buying a horse (or not)

On the Fence gives you the inside scoop on how to help your child get started and progress as a rider. It shows you how your child can enjoy horseback riding in a way that suits her, your family's lifestyle, and your budget.
