Excellent little books. I bought this and Improving the Rider's Position at the same time. They are superb. Only 24 pages in each but packed with easy to read tips on how to improve your riding. The illustrations are great showing the correct and incorrect aids, the how and the why in different moves. As a beginner I found these invaluable and for example, noticed how my horse reacted to voice exactly as described in the book.

As you progress and learn more difficult things, it's easy to let the initial things slip (there is so much to remember), so it is great to just pick up this book and read a couple of pages, say on holding the reins correctly, or leg position, just to remind yourself of the basics.

Recommended for all ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Little Book 10 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought for my grandaughter as she is having riding lessons and hopes for her own pony soon.
It's a handy size to pop into a tack box and full of good basic knowledge, well set out with illustrations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well explained! 27 Nov 2013
By Annie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Really found this little book useful. I have been riding the same mare for the last 12 years and have developed habits that suit each other! I now own a youngster that has just been backed, and its me that needs to do some relearning. This book is straight to the point, and will be a stepping stone for more advanced work in the spring.

This book is short and sweet but has some well explained information on the rider's cues, or aids as they are named, good diagrams and straight forward teaching, very good!
