Synopsis

I Love Ponies by Brenda Aspley

If you love ponies, you will love this exciting book! You can learn all about ponies and horses, including the different pony breeds and horse ancestors, the parts of a pony's anatomy, how ponies behave, pony health and safety, care and feeding, tack and equipment, and learning to ride. You can discover how to interpret 'pony talk' - the body language and facial expressions with which these creatures communicate with each other. It comes with fact-packed, easy-to-read text and delightful illustrations showing ponies and their young riders. This charming book tells you all you need to know about ponies, starting with how they came about. A pony is a type of horse. People first tamed, used and rode wild horses about 3,500 years ago, but the story of the horse really began more than 50 million years ago, with a tiny animal called Eohippus. Over millions of years it changed and grew, and slowly started to look more like a horse. The book shows you how to approach a pony, how to say 'hello' to it, gain its trust and read its moods. Other pages explain the various parts of a pony's body, called points, markings such as the blaze and the stripe, and the animal's paces, from walk to gallop. You can also learn how to ride a pony, the special clothes that riders need to keep them safe, and the equipment that ponies wear, called tack. With detailed illustrations and straightforward text, this book is perfect for everyone who loves ponies.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo
