Why is riding so popular? Why do children take to the saddle like the hordes of Genghis Khan? The answer is simple. The horse is the transport of the future. In a few short years from now when traffic has jammed the last open spaces on the roads, the internal combustion engine will be as obsolete as the hot air balloon. When that day comes, woe to those who have not learned how to get into a saddle — and studied the art of staying there.
In A Leg At Each Corner, Thelwell did much to prepare us for this future. Now he demonstrates in even more wonderful detail the conflict of interest between experienced equine and student equestrian. He is fair to both sides of the bouncing issue — and delightfully-fair to the reader — and full of new ideas on what makes horse and rider run. Here, then, by popular request, is a book which children will welcome— and parents would be foolish to ignore.
