Hey all. Can anybody recommend any books for a beginner? I thought I would get some books so I don't get any bad habits from the start!

What kind of riding are you doing? Are you taking lessons? Looking to do groundwork? Plan to show? There are TONS of great books out there, but some more details could allow us to make better suggestions...

It depends on what type of riding you're doing.

If I was you I'd look into books aimed at children, with regards to grooming they are probably the most simple and effective with out baffling you with loads of extensive scientific stuff! A child book on pony care will tell you the dos, don'ts, how to use what where and basic ailments to keep an eye out for. Look on youtube as well, they normally have some great demonstrations on things of a horsey nature :)

Thanks for everyone who's replied. I reckon I will be doing mostly show jumping. I will check out all of your suggestions.

One of my favorite books for the beginner horse owner is "Basic Horse Care" by Eleanor F. Priince and Gaydell M. Collier. It is easy to read and has both English and Western sub-titles.
