Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Showing Native Ponies examines the wide range of opportunies open to mountain and moorland ponies and explains the classes and judging criteria. Advice is given on show preparation, conditioning and training for the show ring as well as on specific care and turnout requirements for individual breeds. There are sections on shoeing, tack and correct dress of the handler or rider. Individual shows and ringcraft techniques are described, together with tips on how to maximize a pony's potential to present it in the show ring to best advantage. Complemented by numerous colour photographs, Showing Native Ponies is an invaluable handbook for all mountain and moorland pony owners.

Author Biography

Clive Richardson was honorary secretary/treasurer of the Fell Pony Society for nearly ten years. As a successful exhibitor of native ponies both in this country and abroad, he won innumerable championships at national level before retiring from showing to concentrate on judging and writing. He is on a number of judges' panels and has judged extensively in this country as well as in America and on the continent. As well as writing three previous books on Fell ponies and many magazine articles on native breeds, he has produced a compilation of Fell pony bloodlines from 1898 to 1980 inclusive. Clive Richardson is also the author of The Horse Breakers.
