Every child would love to have a horse as a friend. This book answers the many questions children ask, such as: What happens at a pony farm? When do horses and ponies feel comfortable? What equipment do the horse and its rider need? How does one learn to ride a horse and what has to be considered when riding out? What breeds of horses are there? What do the blacksmith and the veterinarian do? How is a foal born?
Horses and ponies are one of the children's favourite subjects, even in pre-school age. This book informs about different breeds, their character and nature, about the first riding class, the first ride out and even the birth of a foal. Ingenious flaps help to understand.
A little "trophy" can be taken out from the book and at the end there are instructions for making a horse album.
