Summary Tens of thousands of kids are already competing in the horse show circuit or are working their way toward that goal. Many more are still dreaming of their first blue ribbon. This pack-along guide provides young competitors with everything they need to know about horse shows: what to bring for themselves and for the horse, what to wear, who does what at the show, show-ring etiquette, safety tips, "winning ways" to impress the judge, and much, much more. The book also features expert advice from the pros: Cherry Hill on horsemanship and equitation, Linda Allen on hunter-jumper, Kansas Carradine on cutting, and Mandy McQuay on excelling in both Western and English riding. In addition, readers will find horse show tips from teenage competitors. This friendly, informative handbook informs and inspires while also being lots of fun. Readers will find useful tips and checklists, behind the scenes photos from horse shows, infographics, intriguing sidebars, and cartoons. There's even space for keeping a journal, plus a Show Diary at the end of the book. This is a handbook every horse-crazy kid will love.
