Excellent book for all level of riders BUT it is more suited to the advanced rider. It covers a lot of subjects from getting started as a beginner rider (the first 105 pages) to competition level in Dressage, Showjumping and Cross-country. I would view this as a book for a life-time of reading, a resource that you can keep going back to over the years. I particularly like how it covers the fitness & feeding of horses, rider fitness is covered really well in diagram format as well as written and the mental preparation for a rider. Excellent glossary of information too. As a beginner rider myself, lots of this book is way over my skill level but it is written so well that it is a pleasure to read even if I can't actually do what they are talking about. So if you are looking for a step by step guide to the basics, this book won't help you enough but if you are looking for a book that will be used over and over again as you advance then it's worth having especially if you are an information nerd.

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 comfortable.
Hey Ho !
There is a lot of stuff for young children who own there own horse though.

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. It has loads of great sections and totally new areas which I haven't seen covered in any other books before, such as rider fitness and excercises for flexibility, as well as reams of information on how to THINK, and how mental preparation can make all the difference to your competetive performance. The diagrams and graphics are really clever and unlike any other books I've seen before (and trust me, I own a lot of horse books!!) I've also found the troubleshooting sections very helpful in overcoming little problems with my horse. In this massive book, William Micklem seems to have covered it all. This is the best book on my shelf!!

This book is useful for every standard of rider, from beginner to seasoned veteran- especially the chapter on how to fall off correctly!There are chapters on basic riding, training the horse, and the specialist disciplines of dressage, showjumping and cross country. There are also excellent sections on the rider's balance and fitness.
The beautiful pictures and troubleshooting boxes reinforce the clear, straightforward text to make this an essential for any rider's bookshelf.
