"Here's a glimpse into my personal philosophy on riding. In Becoming an Effective Rider I describe how to: 

evaluate your own skills 
plan a work session 
choose and work with an instructor to get maximum use out of lesson time 
set goals and achieve them 
and protect yourself from injury. 

This book is being used as a textbook in college riding classes around the country yet it is personal enough to also be one of your best riding buddies."
