This omnibus edition contains much of Norman Thelwell's invaluable advice to aspiring equestrians on how to get into the saddle and stay there, each item illustrated with inimitable and deadly clarity.
From the first publication of 'Angels on Horseback' in 1957, the Thelwell pony entered the language and the libraries of horse-lovers everywhere.
The angels in 'Angels on Horseback' are children, but there is plenty here about their parents.
Both for those who know Thelwell, and for those who have not met him before, this book is a savory at all times but especially after attending a gymkhana. 'A Leg at Each Corner' covers the whole field of equitation from how to get a pony to how to prevent one from getting you: from how to pull his tail to how to bandage your legs.
Finally, once you have mastered all this you can perfect the art of staying in the saddle with 'Riding Academy'.
