Excellent resource for any trainer/rider! I'm looking forward to trying many of the exercises this show season. When your creative juices for setting up new exercises or course just aren't running, I can just flip this book open and pick something that supports our goals for the day. Completely worth the price.

I've been riding for 20 years and done plenty of showing, setting up jumps etc. but there was plenty of things in here that I didn't know. She also has many pages of course diagrams (I have a jumper course set up in my arena right now!). She also has gymnastic courses based on de Nemethy's designs. If you like Linda Allen's 101 Jumping Exercises, you'll find this book useful too!

This is an excellent book, but it tells far more than what the description would imply.
This book goes into details about what colors of jumps and poles are traditional, what is and is not legal at recognized shows, and the safety of each design.
In the section on oxers, the book discusses arrowheads, fan oxers, and several other styles. It compared and contrasted them regarding how easy the design is for different horses to jump, and where the (average) horse would need to take off and land to clear the oxer, with the bascule pencilled in over the jump.
The explanations in this book were very, very clear, going even so far as to tell one how to measure distances between jumps and how to make sure that two related jumps are "square" when setting a course.
In the back, there is a section that has courses drawn out for you so that you can set them up on your own. These are courses for equitation, hunter, and jumper. All of the courses are good with varying degrees of difficulty.

I loved the section where they covered how to set up a practice jumping ring at home on a tight budget...where to skimp, and where to splurge.
This reads like a text book, though, so not an entertaining afternoon read.

easy to follow and well written. I like this manual as a guideline for setting up both training and competition courses for our riders and local show competitors.

This guide should meet anyone's need whether you are an experienced jumper familiar with course set-up, or like myself who has been jumping less than a year and no idea of course set-up. The main reason I got it, I have a small arena at home, the examples given for the small arena are great. It also explains how you will be negotiating the jumps. This has allowed me to continue on doing 'homework' after riding with my trainer.
