Biography

Hance, Captain J E

Captain John Edward Hance taught riding both in the Army and in civilian life. He was best known for his non fiction instructional texts, but also wrote a book aimed at younger readers in which instruction is clothed by a story.

Finding the book
Reasonably easy to find, both with and without its dustjacket.

Bibliography
I've broken my usual habit of listing just fiction texts, as I became interested in Captain Hance, his family, and his riding school. As I am therefore the proud possessor of several of his books, which I've enjoyed, I thought you might be interested in the other things he wrote.
