Even though Olympic Silver Medalist Peter Leone’s latest volume focuses on the sport of Show Jumping, many young horse enthusiasts will be able to garner a good number of horsemanship elements applicable to nearly every horse sport—including harness racing. Peter Leone’s Show Jumping Clinic is absolutely best suited for the younger reader who is looking to improve both their horsemanship skills as well as their show jumpingtechniques. Leone stresses throughout his 224 pages of the importance of the relationship between horse andhis handler. A trusting bond is Leone’s formula for success both on the ground and in the show ring. As the Standardbred breed continues to expand and excell outside of racing, Leone’s book is a handy reference tool for those youngsters hoping to take their off-the-track racehorse to new heights.
It’san outstanding, informative book! Do you get bored reading page after page of gray type with a few photos scattered around? Well, this book changes all that. It is indeed like being at a clinic, with “Spot Checks” to ensure you’re doing things correctly, “Try This” sidebars that help you resolve problems, and excellent illustrations and photos that show you the concept in action. It’s a fast read, and you don’t have to read it cover-to-cover. In fact, we bet you won’t be able to stop picking it up to look at it again.
Peter Leone was a member of the United States Equestrian Team, winning a silver medal at the 1996 Olympics. Winner of more than 50 Grand Prix competitions, including the 2010 Devon Grand Prix, Leone coaches professionals, amateurs, and juniors for the world's top show jumping, equitation, and hunter competitions.
