About this product
- DescriptionFor a child, having their own pony is impossibly exciting. For a parent, however, it can be both a challenge and a huge responsibility. Even the smallest pony can quickly become unmanageable unless he is handled and cared for correctly. This comprehensive and practical guide assumes prior kwledge of the subject and aims to provide first-time owners with straightforward information and advice. The authors dispel the myth that dealing with equines is unnecessarily complicated and believe that the key to understanding and managing your pony is a combination of basic kwledge, common sense and confidence. The book guides you through the pitfalls of buying or loaning a pony and finding a home which suits both the pony and your budget and lifestyle. In addition it offers sensible advice about handling, grooming, daily routine, feeding and watering, foot care and shoeing, the pony's health, common disorders, first aid, saddlery, rugs and other equipment, transport and travelling, and tuition. The aim is to educate and inform in a fuss-free way, giving vice owners the confidence and kw-how they need to keep their pony happy and healthy. Above all, the book aims to encourage every parent to get involved and have fun with their child and their pony.
