What Our Customers Are Saying
We bought the Horses & Ponies Activity Book: Introduction to Horses & Horseback Riding book for our Inclusive Summer Camps at the NC Therapeutic Riding Center. I was thrilled to actually see something with accurate information and drawings about horses and horsemanship for the first time EVER. Thank you bunches!
My kids love this activity book! I initially thought my pony loving 3 year old would be the only one to really get into this book, but my 6 year old boy that isn't so horse-crazy loved it as well! This book has lots of beautiful illustrations and fun activities that all kids will love. It would be a great gift for a kid that has an interest in ponies and horses. It has great information and would be a good introduction into riding. My kids and I love it!!!
We love the activity book! I thought the graphics and activities were great! My daughter has enjoyed learning about the different horse colors, markings, etc.
My pony loving daughter sat and did this book from cover to cover. She finished it with a big smile and said how much fun it was. Having not been able to find a lot of pony related books for her, this was an exciting release. We will make sure to buy it for pony friends for birthdays and other celebrations.

If you have a youngster who is crazy for everything “horsey” and whose heart beats faster just thinking about the next pony ride, then the Horses & Ponies Activity Book: Introduction to Horses & Horseback Riding by Susan DiFelice is for you. Even children only mildly interested in horses will find plenty of fun things to engage them. The book is illustrated in full color. Topics include riding safety, grooming, types of tack, parts of bridles and saddles, parts of the horse, horse and pony terms, coat colors, face and leg markings, gaits, horse sports, horse and pony breeds, and even how to tie a quick release knot. DiFelice, a lifelong rider herself, wrote the book based on the horsemanship lessons she taught her own children. Continue reading…
Horses & Ponies Activity Book: Introduction to Horses & Horseback Riding makes learning about horsemanship fun, and it does so in a highly effective and memorable way. DiFelice’s book is jam-packed with information, but it also includes puzzles, mazes, quizzes and word searches to ensure that readers retain what they’ve read and make that knowledge their own. I loved learning, finally, what the “hand” measurement actually was and how the different breeds of horses differed in temperament. I also found her discussions on equine terminology and grooming to be fascinating. While this book is geared toward younger riders, anyone who loves horses should give this fun and informative book a read. DiFelice has honed the essentials of horsemanship into an interactive book that works so very well. Horses & Ponies Activity Book: Introduction to Horses & Horseback Riding is most highly recommended. Continue reading…
Never losing sight of the fact that learning can be fun, DiFelice integrates the information with interactive activities like mazes, word searches, crosswords, coloring, object finds within a picture, and even an old-fashioned paper pony doll. All of these activities require different intellectual and motor skills which challenge young readers while entertaining them. And for those in doubt, the answers to all the questions and mazes are provided in the back of the book. The author’s background as an artist and digital designer have held her in good stead, as each page of the activity book is colorful and bursting with images, beckoning young fingers to trace, to point, and to seek the objects buried within each picture.
