5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Book for Serious Riders!!
This book really is the ultimate guide for any horse rider - it takes you right through the steps to success with any horse, from beginning, to advanced showjumping, dressage and eventing.

2.0 out of 5 stars good for those dressage fans
Not what I was looking for anyway.
I wanted a step by step guide to what the learner rider has to do when trotting,cantering etc. As with alot of these books it tells you more about what the horse is doing underneath you! I needed tips ie thusting your pelvis forward whilst trotting in time with the horse-when you've mastered the knack, you and the horse should feel...

5.0 out of 5 stars By far the best horse riding book you will get!, 30 July 2008
I found this book whilst browsing in a bookshop in France and as soon as I opened it I had to buy it. It has sections on everything from starting out to top level competition. I goes into surprisingly a lot of detail considering the range of subjects covered. The pages are bright and colourful with lots of photos and diagrams making the book as easy to flick through as it is to read from start to finish. In my opinion its the best book out there if you're looking for an all round horse riding manual.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "Must Have" for a rider's bookshelf, 15 July 2009

I am a total beginner when it comes to horses. I bought this book after my first ever horse riding lesson at the age of 47! This book takes you through the basic techniques of horse riding. It is easy to understand with good clear pictures. Excellent at explaining to a beginner how it is done. There is also further sections as you become more experienced explaining the techniques of dressgae and show jumping. Used as a guide along with riding lessons, this book is a 'Must Have' for anyone who really enjoys riding.

My daughter has started to learn to ride and this book is her new bible. The book even has exercises she can do when shes not riding to help strengthen her posture and riding position. It also goes into information regarding, jumping, dressage and cross country riding. Its a fabulous book and a must for anyone wanting to learn to ride, or even already riding and wanting to get better at it

I chose this rating because it was a very informative book. It was especially good for learning about jumping, which I previously had difficulty with. I also like this book because it has a list of horse and rider equipment. I would recommend this product to riders of all levels.

Bought this book after having one lesson and it's great! loads of information on many disaplines, and caters well for the very beginner, someone trying to break a horse for riding, or anyone that wants a bit of back ground reading.

I love this book & dip in & out of it regularly; loads of info from start to finish on training & horse care; fittening for competiton, trouble shooting & more. Very much written with the horse's best interests at heart rather than the human's; which I like. William Micklem sure knows his stuff!
