Guide Review - The Horseless Rider-Book Review
This book will be less useful for the beginner rider. But for the rider with some experience she offers many options for staying in the saddle. She also describes some best and worst case scenarios for the horseless rider, but cautions readers not to be too hasty in judging a stable or horse as sometimes things may be exactly opposite to what they first appear. Her practical ideas will help inspire the horseless rider to look for ways to keep riding and working with horses.
