Jumping for Kids

By Lesley Ward

Sailing over fences is one of the most exciting things you can do on horseback. In this kid-friendly guide, Lesley Ward teaches young riders how to jump safely and correctly. With plenty of helpful diagrams, charts, and photographs, riders learn to trot over poles and gradually work toward bigger, more challenging obstacles. Ward offers a healthy mix of enthusiasm, discipline, and patience that will hook you on the thrills of jumping and inspire you to take your riding to the next level.
