There is a wealth of knowledge between the covers of this book. I recommend it to anyone training the young or not so young horse. For dressage or for trail riding. Technically, it's a dressage book. In practice, any rider in any discipline could get something useful from it. It's just a good book to read if you like riding horses, and learning about them. You can get a lot of good ideas from this book, particularly if you've already been working with horses for several years. If you haven't been working so long, it can start you on the right track with a good basic training philosophy. Take your time reading it. The material can be somewhat tedious, so just pause often to digest. It's worth working through.
