Whether you are a pony club member barely past your second lesson, an equestrian competitor who places at every show, or a riding instructor looking for new lesson ideas, Amanda J. Berges’s book, Training Tree for Riders, is a great addition to any equestrian’s library. Basing her lessons around the “training tree,” Berges utilizes six levels of riding skill to work towards improvement.

The Off The Track Thoroughbred (OTTB) seems to be the latest trend in horse literature and the children’s book, Uh-Oh, Otis! recently joined the line-up. Uh-Oh, Otis! was written and illustrated by college student Kelsey Merriam and tells the story of Otis, a Thoroughbred who failed on the track and in various careers before finding his forever home. The 25 page, full color book has large, easy to read font and would be great for the pony-loving first grader in your life.

If Raja, Story of a Racehorse had been written when I was 11-years-old I would have worn the cover off from reading and re-reading it. Thirteen years later I still read the 250 page book in one sitting as I just had to know what was going to happen to Raja next.

Sarah Montague was like any horse crazy young girl – riding every chance she got and dreaming of riding any time she was not on horse back, but the “real world” got in the way. After college Montague got a job in a big city and riding had to go on the back burner.

The United States Eventing Association does all they can to promote continuing education throughout their membership. One inexpensive, quick, and easy way to continue learning as much as possible is by reading every book that you can get your hands on.
