...it's not just a book of pictures and a few captions, it goes
beyond that and really helps the reader to understand the horse's
balance... You don't have to be a competitive rider to enjoy this
book and learn from it. * Northern Horse Magazine *
Excellent use of photos and illustrations with explanations get to the nub of how riders can use their weight, and the aid of gravity, to enhance their riding and help, rather than hinder, their horse in all paces and movements. While much is said and written about the rider's seat, this is the first book I've found that clearly and simply explains how weight can be used as a positive aid. -- CP CP * Horse & Hound *
