With a foreword by Carl Hester, this book is for parents and children. Some parents have young children who are 'pony mad', but they themselves have no understanding or knowledge of ponies. By reading this book with their children, they can learn together and enjoy the fascinating journey of understanding pony behaviour. Through this knowledge and understanding it can be seen how a pony can become: safe to be with, safe to handle, safe to ride and a willing friend and partner. The book is suitable for children between 6-9 to read with a parent or 9-12 to read on their own. "Think Like A Pony" is the foundation book for future books in the series. Through understanding the concepts explained in this book, children and parents will have the required information and knowledge essential for the understanding of book 2 which covers ground skills, with your pony, and book 3 which covers ridden skills with your pony.

This book is a great way for pony-mad kids (and their parents) to learn to understand the way ponies think and why they behave as they do. The book has backing from top dressage rider Carl Hester, who stresses how important it is to know how to work with horses and ponies in a safe way.
Think Like a Pony takes a fun and informative approach to looking at equine behaviour, which through illustrations and punchy paragraphs, offers the reader a delightful pictorial guide to understanding horses and ponies. The ideal reading choice for non-horsey parents and pony mad kids, this book helps combine educational reading with an interesting topic that also helps both adults and children stay safe around horses and ponies and would be an ideal Christmas gift for pony mad girls.
