As with any book of exercises, riders should realize they can only get out of them what they are able to put into them. Regular feedback from a qualified coach or friend, listening carefully to what your horse tells you, and respecting the difficulty of seemingly 'simple' exercises will help riders move forward.
As the book progresses, exercises get increasingly challenging. There is something for all levels of riders, from 'D' Level Pony Clubbers to those preparing for 4' jumpers. Just as valuable as the exercises are the in-depth explanations and directions. Problem-solving, double-check, and tip boxes are provided for each exercise. Benefits are also clearly explained.
