Editorial Reviews

Holly Menino
The system Cronin lays out is beautiful: simple, direct, humane. His book is filled with telling observation and advice that will stay with any reader who wants to improve his or her work with horses.

Patte Zumbrun
Written with convincing clarity, Schooling and Riding the Sport Horse is applicable to the amateur or to the professional horseman in a wide variety of venues in today's equestrian population. Cronin's book demystifies the concepts behind the modern forward seat and offers a legitimate system to the American horse show world to improve the quality of hunters and jumpers.
