Saddle up and explore the small world of Shetland ponies! Engaging text encourages readers to examine the history of the Shetland and its important role as a child's mount or cart pony. From mane to tail, there's no horsing around when it comes to introducing readers to the Shetland's size, coat colors, and rugged features such as its thick coat and stocky legs. Young equestrians will gain the confidence to identify this tough breed, as well as the newer American Shetland breed. Additional chapters cover feeding, grooming, veterinary care, general tack, foals, and basic horse training. Full-color photos throughout show off the Shetland in various colors and situations. Whether skilled in horsemanship or going for their first ride, readers will feel ready to run with the wind in pursuit of Shetland ponies! Bolded glossary terms, phonetic spellings, and an index supplement the easy-to-read chapter text. Checkerboard Library is an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.
