Editorial Reviews

Review

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 is an extraordinary equestrian from extraordinary family of equestrian's including his brothers Armand and Mark Leone who I had the pleasure to watch and admire while they competed in Grand Prixs at Ox Ridge Hunt Club during my youth. In this book Peter presents wonderful, thoughtful exercises for the experienced or aspiring equestrian. I have spent many nights pouring over the pages thinking about how I can incorporate Peter's thoughts in order to improve my riding. Having ridden since I was 8 as a hunter/jumper, qualifying for the Medal and Maclay equitation finals as a teen, and now 44 riding in the Adult Amateurs, this book pushes me to think about my riding so that I can continually hone my equestrian skills. I highly recommend this book. It is extremly user friendly with excellent illustrations, along with examples of current equestrians who are masters of their craft.

Over the years, I have found the English riding discipline to be somewhat stuck in traditionalism and therefor a bit behind in new modern methods. Peter is a far from stuck in traditionalism as can be! I found his thoughts and perspectives on riding to be refreshing, informative, inspiring, and very applicable to all riding disciplines, not just jumping. I have shown this book to several students who are not interested in jumping (one rides western only) and all have been able to take something from it.
All writers of riding instruction books talk about "use of the seat". Peter is the first I have ever read to emphasize the importance of "non-use of the seat" as well. This is one of the many tidbits that opened my eyes in this book.
Scattered throughout the book are "spot checks" to help you determine just where you are in your riding competence. It is probably not where you think you are. Sometimes it is just use of different words that can make a philosophy or technique stick in your head: like where he talks about using "a little more salt or a little more sugar"; if it won't stick in your head, you can't use it when you need it.
This very colorful book contains tons of beautiful photos and well-drawn diagrams that will inspire you to a greater relationship with your horse: your partner, your friend.

Pretty basic book, tells you what is required but not very much on how to do it specifically. Wouldn't recommend this one.

I love Peter Leone's "Ride the Body" video, and based on that I finally went ahead and bought the book. It's absolutely gorgeous! With diagrams, excellent explanations, appropriate anecdotes, and some really fantastic photos, this book has enough information for me as a trainer to learn and is easily accessible for the students.

There are some great exercises as well as the usual-but-necessary discussion of safe equipment and a proper horse.

One of the things about this book that I enjoy over some of the other common jumping manuals is his emphasis on flatwork. He makes it very clear that good dressage could be the difference between winning and just-not-quite.

Overall it's a fantastic book with lots of good tips, some wonderful stories, and really educational photos.
