The Kingfisher Illustrated Horse & Pony Encyclopedia is a fantastic gift for children who dream of having a horse or pony of their own. There is a clear introduction to the horse followed by chapters explaining horse and pony care, riding lessons, and breeds. The encyclopedia is packed full of gorgeous photographs of horses and ponies -- showing how they look, what they do, and where in the world they are found. And of course every horse lover wants to ride, and The Kingfisher Illustrated Horse & Pony Encyclopedia takes the novice rider from first mount to cantering and galloping.
Sandy Ransford has over 30 books for children to her credit. These include titles on horses and riding, dogs, fashion for kids, and conservation - as well as many activity, game and puzzle books. She is the author of all of the books in the Kingfisher Riding Club series - First Riding Lessons, Horses & Ponies, Horse & Pony Breeds, and Horse & Pony Care - as well as Horse & Pony Factfile.
An extensive reference guide for horse lovers with vibrant photographs, a glossary, an index, and website, this title would be a great addition to any book collection.
