  •    About the Author

    Between them, Kate Godfrey and Shonagh Steven BHSII have the experience and enthusiasm to guide you from your first day ride through to camping expeditions with a packhorse. Kate has covered many thousands of miles on horseback through Britain's wild places and is a breeder and trainer of champion Highland ponies. Shonagh is an award-winning instructor, including BHS Scottish Young Instructor of the Year and BHS Scotland Most Popular Instructor, with a special flair for helping to improve the less-than-perfect horse and pony.

The days have long gone when knowledge was handed down through generations. The internet, our modern equivalent, does not always give hands-on experience to enable the rider to tackle a variety of situations.

This book fills a huge gap and is an absolute 'must read' for riders of every level who wish  to fer full enjoyment from their horse while exploring the countryside.

Packed with practical, common sense solutions to problems which you may encounter, 'Discover Off-Road Riding' will provide you with the knowledge and confidence to embark safely on longer rides and more adventurous off-road challenges.

An amusing and easy read, it is full of information and attention to detail which will inspire every rider to have a go at off-road riding.

Loraine Young Chairman, BHS Scotland
