From riding lessons to club events, the 16 games collected in this entertaining and safety-conscious book provide hours of enjoyment for young riders and their horses. It includes classic games that have been played in 4-H and United States Pony Clubs groups for decades: egg-and-spoon, sit-a-buck, breakaway, and musical chairs, among others. The games are ideal ways to build horsemanship and reinforce specific riding skills, such as starting and stopping, mounting and dismounting, balance, and steering—all while having fun with horses and friends.
