"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."
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."
"All Cherry's works are easy to understand and apply; this book is a dream come true for instructors".
"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."
