Quarter Horse Kids: An Eventer: Dressage,
Stadium Jumping, and Cross Country
by Jill Thomas
In this third book in the Quarter Horse Kids series, author Jill Thomas follows actress and equestrienne Katherine Mallen Kupferer as she trains and competes in the three parts of eventing - dressage, stadium jumping and cross country - on her fearless mare, Piper.
We’ve all seen the Olympics and those amazing horses and riders who compete in the equestrian sport of eventing - now you can follow Katherine and Piper through horse care and practice at the farm, to a schooling jumper show, and on to a multi-day event! Building trust, skills and teamwork every day, Katherine and Piper show us the world behind the excitement of galloping and jumping a challenging course, and share what it takes to have a successful friendship with a horse.
