This book fills a niche that is so empty that it's still my bible when working with adult riders.
Ms. Jahiel has done a fabulous job.
If you are thinking of riding for the first time or getting back on board after a long hiatus then think seriously about buying this book.
Heads above the rest.
Thanks from someone who gets quite a few folks who have hit their stride in a career and then decide to follow the equine dream.
