Learning to Ride as an Adult by Erika Prockl
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The book is a training manual for adults who are learning to ride. It might be generally assumed that most people learn to ride when they are children, yet increasingly adults of all ages are turning to riding for pleasure and relaxation, or as a hobby, or are returning to it later in life when circumstances allow, and this is now a booming part of the equestrian market. Adults generally find it harder to learn to ride than do children - balance and coordination are harder and adults are naturally more cautious and 'stiffer'. The learning process is, for many, an enjoyable if challenging part of their lives. Erika Prockl is a riding instructress who has devised her own training programme for adults, and yet makes it feel like fun. * Definitely a big, and growing, market looking for guidance. * This adult market sector will be very happy to spend money on itself. * In full colour throughout, with 52 full colour photographs and 43 humorous colour line drawings.
