Showing Native Ponies by Clive Richardson
Showing Native Ponies examines the wide range of opportunies open to mountain and moorland ponies and explains the classes and judging criteria. Advice is given on show preparation, conditioning and training for the show ring as well as on specific care and turnout requirements for individual breeds. There are sections on shoeing, tack and correct dress of the handler or rider. Individual shows and ringcraft techniques are described, together with tips on how to maximize a pony's potential to present it in the show ring to best advantage. Complemented by numerous colour photographs, Showing Native Ponies is an invaluable handbook for all mountain and moorland pony owners.
