Whether you're a member of the United States Pony Club who has achieved the D Level certificates or simply a rider who has mastered the same basic skills, this manual enables you to increase your skills and teaches you what you need to know in order to ride independently and correctly with good position, balance, and use of the aids on the flat, over fences, and in the open.
This manual teaches you not only how to care for and manage your horse, but also the skills needed for conditioning and preparing your horse and yourself for competitions and special events. Features new to this Second Edition include:
-New and revised coverage of land conservation and horse health and safety
-Better organization for ease of reference
-Updates of critical developments in riding, instruction, and competition
-In-depth revision of nutrition and veterinary topics
From the C Level, you may go on to higher Pony Club certifications, such as the B or A Rating, or specialize in such disciplines as dressage, show jumping, and eventing. Or you may just want the pleasure of caring for your horse and participating in your favorite riding activities. Either way, The United States Pony Club Manual of Horsemanship: Intermediate Horsemanship/C1-C2 Level will give you an excellent basis in horsemanship for the lifelong enjoyment of horses and horse sports.
