Norman Thelwell's illustrations and timeless wit are bound to get another generation of young riders ‘hooked’ on the ‘Thelwell pony.’ It should be required reading for all children (and their parents) attending summer riding camps. —Mid-South Horse Review, May 2017
The late Norman Thelwell was a British artist whose first cartoon appeared in the satirical magazine Punch in 1952. A generation of stiff-upper-lip equestrian types grew up cackling over Thelwell's uncanny depictions of horse-mad children, fat hairy ponies with a stubborn streak, exasperated riding instructors, and weary parents.
The humor and the countryside depicted in Thelwell's three classic books of equestrian cartoons—Angels on Horseback, A Leg at Each Corner, and Thelwell's Riding Academy—are British, but horse lovers everywhere related to the depictions of Thelwell's characters and their willful equines. Now all three are back in print in collected form: Thelwell's Pony Cavalcade celebrates the 60th anniversary of Angels on Horseback. The hunt caps and the baggy jodhpurs may be dated, but horses and riders haven't changed and Thelwell is as funny as ever. Buy this book and treat yourself or a horse lover in your life to some guaranteed belly laughs. USDF Connection, July/August 2017
