Riding clubs

Books covering riding clubs.

Riding clubs seem to be started (by British children at least; I haven’t tracked down many of the American variety yet) by children in despair at the dreadful quality of their riding. As the Pony Club is so ubiquitous, that probably explains why these stories are relatively thin on the ground, the Pony Club providing organised and adult-led improvement.
