3.0 out of 5 stars Kindle version Oct. 23 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like this book, however I wouldn't recommend buying a manual like this in Kindle format. You will need the hard cover format to take into the arena to refer to and also to give to your coach. The kindle format can't be printed and the diagrams often are split onto to pages making it a bit of challenge to understand.

Format:Spiral-bound
I thought the book was good over all, it had good suggestions on things to do, but In the first Exercise the Halt it says " the halt should be square and balanced" So how do you accomplish that? I thought that half the lesson and been left out.

If you have just begun western riding- like me, you will love this book. I had been riding English for 6 years, and found that western was a bit differant. This book helped me get my balance and courage. I really reccomemend this book!

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless May 28 2005
By Reading Horse - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
This book is completely useless for someone learning western riding. It has detailed exercise description with no information about how to actually do them. For example, several pages are dedicated to walk-jog-walk exercises, with no description about how to get a horse to transition from a walk to a jog and from a jog to a walk.

For the circle exercises the advice it to "use your inside leg to activate the inside hind leg (I assume of the horse)" -- but HOW?

I learned nothing from this book and it was a complete waste of money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was looking for Oct. 1 2006
By Sammie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Spiral-bound
This book was completely useless to me. I was hoping for a book that would have interesting and varied arena exercises for young horses such as turns on the forehand and rear, spirals, backing two steps- forward two- back three- forward three, etc. Things to work on when you can't get out on a trail.

Instead, it is a simple book covering such basics as how to halt, how to walk, jog, lope. Apparently it is intended for someone who is entering a western pleasure class. Not what I was looking for.

1.0 out of 5 stars great for the absolute beginner Oct. 9 2009
By Sunfairy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Spiral-bound
Being some one who has been riding all her life, this book is useless. Also i already started with western riding. I was hoping this book would give me a little more insight about 'how to' do exercises. In stead it is a book for people who know absolutely nothing about horse riding, english or western.
So if you are beginning to take classes for horse riding, this little book might help you. It is very clear on how to sit, feel movements ect. Explains the different gaites and what to expect to feel when riding a horse.

so for me it wasn't what i expecting to get, hence the 1 star. But looking from a beginners perpective it could be a 4 star book(let).
