Featured Book


A ringside exercise book for riders who want to improve their own and their horse's skills. The author of more than 600 articles on horses and related subjects demonstrates through a unique "read-and ride" format a variety of drills, from simple skills such as the "Working Walk and Jog" to more advanced "Two Squares", "Flying Change", and more. all are suitable for both English and Western riders.

The author, Cherry Hill , August 5, 1997 Designed so that you can Read 'n Ride I wrote this book on horseback. As I rode, I spoke into a tape recorder that I carried in a waist pack. That's why I know you will find it practical and useful. Each exercise is presented with an arena map and step-by-step instructions on how to ride the exercise. I also included Benefits, Cautions, Notes, Variations and a drawing for each exercise that shows an important positive aspect or a tendency to avoid. The binding allows the book to be hung like a calendar or draped over the arena rail so you can Read 'n Ride.
