"To keep us all from riding around in circles, I've compiled classic arena exercises along with my own personal favorites. Each exercise is presented with an arena map and step-by-step instructions on how to ride the exercise. I've included Benefits, Cautions, Notes, and Variations. There is also a horse and rider drawing for each exercise that depicts some important aspect of the exercise. The binding allows the book to be hung like a calendar or draped over the arena rail so you can Read 'n Ride."    Cherry Hill, award-winning author of books on horse training, riding, horse care, horse facilities, management, grooming, and health care.

Carla Wennberg, AQHA judge and instructor :
"This book is perfect for anyone who is seeking to improve their riding skills or their horse's performance."

Western Horseman:
"There is a wealth of how-to information in this spiral bound book for both English and Western disciplines."

Horseplay Magazine:
 "All Cherry's works are easy to understand and apply; this book is a dream come true for instructors".
Practical Horseman:
 "Besides helping riders, our testers thought the book an excellent resource for instructors looking for new exercises or for new approaches to teaching old ones."
