This book on the production and exhibition of ponies under saddle begins by tracing the evolution of the modern riding pony from the polo pony and the indigenous natives, describing the formation of the British Show Pony Society, its aims and requirements, and the classification of exhibits. From selecting a pony with regard to conformation, type, performance and temperament, the book covers training, feeding and conditioning ponies, as well as production and presentation in the show ring. The refinements of turn-out, saddlery, dress and ringcraft are explained and no minutiae of detail is omitted from the width of the girth to the size of the buttonhole.
