Ida Berry Riggs

Ida Berry Riggs is an author about whom remarkably little information is available. She wrote just one book, as far as I know, though she may of course have written under other names. Her one book is a ranch story, though one to which time has not been kind. Breaking a two year old certainly wouldn’t read well to many modern riders now.


Finding the book: reasonably easy to find. The book wasn’t published in the UK.

“When her palomino horse shows no cow sense at all, Barby trades him for a
two year old bay horse that looks like a good cutting horse. She trains the
horse Panchito herself.”
