Treats never hurt! 'Gincy Self Bucklin is the daughter of Margaret Cabell Self, renowned riding teacher and author of over 40 books on horses and riding. Gincy’s mother was the first writer to produce a book intended for readers who knew nothing at all about horses. As one of those clueless riders, I grew up reading many of her mother's books. Gincy began assisting in her mother’s riding program when she was twelve, launching a career that has lasted over 60 years. Teaching first in her mother’s stable and later in stables that she managed herself, Gincy has taught with the help of instructors whom she herself trained in her methods. Her pupils have included recreational riders of all ages and levels, many of whom showed extensively in hunters, jumpers, dressage and combined training, and often became professional horsemen themselves'. Many good, basic, common sense suggestions and directions for riding safely [horse and rider] and FUN!
