I'm a twelve year old rider. I just started to learn to ride. I wanted to learn to ride better and faster since my riding lessons are only once a week. I think that the book helped me a great deal. I got to learn at the pace I felt comfortable with.

I am a 14 year old who read this book a year ago to help me with my showing that season. It improved my riding greatly. I couldn't get lessons at the time, but now I am proud to have learned how to ride all by myself and to be good enough to win a couple ribbons. I owe it greatly to this book. It is the best book on riding that I have ever read.

This is an awesome book teeling just about everything you need to know about basic riding! The index is full of pictures about tack, brushes and parts of the horse! It seems like you have a trainer right there with you helping you along the way, going at your pace! It is a great book for all!

I read this book just to see if I was riding the correct way because I taught myself. I learned a lot and it has helped me understand my horse better. It would be a great book for a Novice Rider or new Instructer. Anyone will benifit from reading this to improve their skills!

I am a junior horseman and bought this book recently.
It is a very good book to remind riders the basic techniques and to improve riding skills. It is very comprehensive which includes the basis of horsing to showing.
I believe this book is a good value for money.

Format: Paperback
I have to say it's really "basic". I didn't mean that it's worthless.But it's not worth the price. It suits the one who is interested in horsemanship but doesn't have any experience in riding . The major drawback is the pictures or graph are not enough for the reader to make a precise and vivid image of what the author trys to present. And this is quiet helpful for novice riders.isn't it?

Excellent book if you want to learn about riding. Learn about teaching riding as well. This is both for western and English.
