The Instructor's Handbook
Essential reading not only for those involved with The Pony Club but also for anyone concerned with the teaching and organisation of children and ponies at any level. It explains the general principles of instruction and the practicalities of taking both mounted and dismounted lessons. It covers school movements and exercises, preliminary work over poles, and jumping, as well as preparations for competitions. There is advice on road safety, giving lectures, and organising games, quizzes and other activities. Throughout the book, which is generously illustrated with specially commissioned drawings and diagrams, the emphasis is on safety. Due consideration is also given to the requirements of beginners and the very young.
