Guarantee you will use it! I've ridden for over forty (40) years and found this a succinct, comprehensive reference. Actually purchased it as a source book for my daughter who is just starting to learn to ride but have found it useful for myself as well. I would recommend it as a reference for any horse enthusiasts library be they novice or experienced.

My uncle bought this book for me for my birthday. I have only been riding for about 2 months, and the information in this book is never-ending. Very interesting and helpful to a person, like me, who has been riding for a short time or for someone who has been riding for 10 or 11 years!
