If there is more than 5 stars to give, I would blindly give it to this book! It gives a basic understanding about the true nature of both rider and the horse covering various areas in the field of riding as the rider's training,& horse's training, and it gives some tips a rider should know beforehand obout competitions. It has been a great deal of help to me as I feel it could complement my practical riding training.
