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.

Born wild in Nevada, the beautiful dun Mustang stallion named Padré was gathered and adopted through the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). He bears a unique BLM freeze brand on his neck, which is used to identify the wild horses that have been gathered from public rangelands.
When his owner Patti Gruber took him to his first show in-hand, Padré qualified for Dressage at Devon, which is one of the highest-rated international dressage competitions. Padré was the first mustang to ever compete at Devon, and he took home first place in the Four Year Old and Older Stallions (in hand) class, as well as winning Reserve Grand Champion Stallion Overall. To top off the year, Padré was also ranked #14 USDF Dressage Sport Horse Breeding Horse of the Year for 4 Year Old and Older Stallions. Padré has truly shown what great horses domesticated Mustangs can be!
