School Library Journal Review

Gr 3 Up-Clearly and accessibly written, this update of The Young Rider (DK, 1993) is mostly unchanged from the original. It provides a basic introduction to ponies and English-style riding that will serve a wide audience. The children in the photos clearly enjoy sharing their skills with readers, while Green, a highly respected British Three Day Event rider, provides an authoritative voice with a friendly tone. Some children may find the small print difficult to read, but the typical DK use of white space and outstanding photography invites them to make the effort. Topics covered include choosing a riding school, what to wear, what to expect from a first lesson, pony care, tack, stable care, feeding, grooming, showing, and more. "Useful Addresses" has been updated with the addition of Web sites and e-mail contacts for groups and associations.-Lisa Falk, Los Angeles Public Library (c) Copyright 2010.
