I love this book! It is best not to buy it on an e-reader becase you will want to take it to the barn with you and flip through it before you ride. Plus it is easier to read in a spiral bound book format.

This is a great book for new riders who are just learning the basics or seasoned riders who want to use the excellent gymnastic exercises described by this well know course designer to polish their riding. The exercises are specific, well described and illustrated, and the point of the each exercise is well discussed. Great Book! Thank you for putting it together, Linda.
