Press Release - Horse Books
Trafalgar Square Publishing is pleased to announce the release of The Parent’s Guide to Horseback Riding by Jessica Jahiel. Nothing is more important to parents than the safety and happiness of their children, and this book is a handy resource guide to help ensure both. Parents without prior experience can feel overwhelmed by the physical risks inherent in handling, riding, and competing horses—not to mention the psychological challenges and numerous expenses, and a little guidance is necessary to help them support their children’s aspirations in an informed and sensible manner. This book provides just that—inside, Jessica Jahiel arms parents with information that will not only put their minds at ease, but will also help them maximize the athletic and emotional benefit riding brings their children.
Includes information on how to begin: choosing a riding instructor and lesson barn; safe and appropriate tack and attire: what a child really needs; levels of parental involvement: how and when to help; buying a horse or pony: what it costs, what to look for, and where to look; trailering horses: loading and towing on your own; show manners: how you and your child should behave; growing up: when a child wants a career with horses; plus, book recommendations, a handy glossary of equestrian terms, and up-to-date listings of equestrian magazines, associations, and tack and clothing manufacturers!
