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.
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.
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).
