From the Publisher

"If you've got five minutes to spare in your day, then Wendy Murdoch can show you 50 ways to fine-tune your riding skills . . . The book scores bonus points for its pleasing layout, full of four-color photos to illustrate each exercise."  —Horsemen's Yankee Pedlar

"There are 50 fixes divided into body areas for quick reference. . . . The fixes begin with balancing your head and become more and more challenging as they continue to the back of the book. Excellent photos leave no doubt as to how to do it. This is really good stuff." —Dressage Today (February 2013)
