Riding for the Rest of Us  (Click here to view larger image)Riding for the Rest of Us: A Practical Guide for Adult Riders

by Jessica Jahiel, Ph.D.

Howell Book House, Macmillan Publishing, 1996.

Award-winning book, American Horse Publications, 1996

This book is for adult riders, the neglected majority. It doesn't assume that all riders are thin, fit, and wealthy, or that they ride every weekday, every weekend, and all summer long. It doesn't assume that every rider can be on the show circuit, or wants to be -- or that every rider's goal is the Olympic Games. But neither does it assume that adult riders without competitive ambitions are happy to potter about on their horses, never making an effort and never improving.

This book is for all of the sometime riders who love their horses and their sport, who work from 9-5 all week -- and sometimes on weekends -- to support their horses, and who can't afford the time or money to go to many clinics or shows. It is for the riders who have houses or apartments to clean, laundry to do, bills to pay, and families and friends who need attention. It is, in short, for real, normal adult riders.
