With the help of the Reins of Life team, I Am . . . I Can: The Horseback Rider was written with new, young riders in mind, who often fear the strange sights, smells, and feelings they may experience at the barn. This book takes a young child through the process of introducing him to these new experiences along with encouraging him through the steps that safely ends with him riding his equine partner, Hampton. With this huge accomplishment, he sits tall and proud on his horse, accompanied by cheers of joy from the helper who patiently helped him overcome his insecurities.
