If you find yourself doing the same exercises day after day with your horse and would like to introduce some variety into your work then this is the book for you.
101 Dressage Exercises is full of ideas that will help you improve your horses way of going. They range from very easy to fairly advanced though with some imagination you can simplify the more difficult exercises and then aim to progress your work so that you doing the exercise that they describe.
I was having real problems with canter work - both transition into and out of and during. I concentrated for two weeks on my horses canter. Before this I was getting 3 and 4 for canter work in Prelim Affiliated Tests but 6 and 7 for trot and after concentrating on his canter work by using the cantering exercises in the book in my next test I got 6's and 7's. The cantering even feels better.
The book is laid out with a diagram on one page and on the opposite facing page a description of the exercise and what you have to do. It is very easy to follow. It covers warming up, looseness, straightness, rider position, lateral work, cantering, suspension, flying changes, lengthening and fitness.
The book assumes that you already know how to get the horse to leg yield, turn on the forehand and haunches, shoulder-in etc - it does not explain how to do this - it informs you how you use these movements to improve the horse. Though not every exercise requires you to perform one of these movements. Many of the exercises include simple transitions and flexing the horse.
It really is a must have book in order to give you and your horse variety in your work. I would normally do 4-5 exercises spending 10 mins on each with 5 mins on each rein. I was able to generate a plan using 4-5 different exercises each day for 16 days.

I'm not going to rabbit on, other than to say the previous review by 'A Reader' is spot on. This isn't a treatise on how to ride - that is assumed knowledge. Rather this is a collection of exercises split into categories addressing specific goals. A complete must for getting out of that 'bored in the manege going round in endless circles' feeling we all get sometimes - it's good to pick out 5 or so complementary exercises and then go and school with some purpose and structure.

This is a truly indispensable little book - and it's even in format that you can hang it up for quick reference (don't leave it in the stable.... a large quadrupedic friend of mine says it's quite tasty...) ;-)

This is an excellent book clearly written large type in a format enabling one to hang it on the wall, like a calendar, for easy reference at the stable. Exercises described for warming up, looseness, straightness, lateral work and most importantly rider position ! Traditional with extras along natural horsemanship lines.

The book is written clearly and gives useful exercises to work on. I have used this for ideas for coaching other riders and picked exercises to work through with my TB who is retraining. I find it useful and concise.

This is so typical of "Modern" Dressage. Sadly even judges are blind to theses faults nowadays.
I was lucky enough to have been taught by some of the great Masters of classical Dressage / Schooling.
If you really care about your horse & it's comfort, strongly advise you seek out the classical Masters books.
You won't win as many rossettes, but you will improve any horse you ride.
I know which I prefer.

Brought this for a xmas gift for a friend who does dressage, she competes at beginner/intermediate so I hope its the right level for her.

The book is in a binder with large pictures and writing so makes it an easy reference to follow while in the field I guess.

Lisa is an excellent teacher and is very well trained in the German riding system. Very well done and a very useful book for bringing on horses or a planning a training schedule for a green horse.
