Review: 'Horse: The Essential Guide for Young Equestrians' by Libby Hamilton

Horse: The Essential Guide for Young Equestrians by Libby Hamilton, Illustrated by Sophie Allsopp, John Butler, Adam Stower, and Mik Martin, 2008, Candlewick Press, $15.99, hardbound, 24 pages. Category/Genre: reference. Cover: great. Where we got it: publisher. Where you can get it: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million. 

This guide for beginners is packed with artwork ranging from the realistic to the cartoonish. There's a ton of information, starting with the parts of a horse and a look at the major horse and pony breeds. 

The author goes over markings and colours, horse care, riding, horse shows, and professionals in the field. The book also has some pull-out sections for added interest. All in all, a pretty spectacular book. 

For ages 6-9.
