    Dressage, the equestrian practice in which a horse makes highly precise movements in response to barely perceptible signals from the rider, has taken hold of America’s equestrians. Participation rates have risen by 200 percent over the past twenty years, as baby-boomer riders have discovered dressage to be less strenuous and dangerous than jumping, yet offering the satisfaction of mastering techniques and the opportunity to compete and advance to higher levels of achievement. 101 Dressage Exercises for Horse & Rider, presented in Storey’s highly visual “Read & Ride” format, features a full arena diagram and stepby- step instructions for each exercise. The exercises address all levels of riders, starting with the basics and moving up to maneuvers developed by members of the U.S. Olympic team. Training tips and masterly guidance make this an indispensable reference for all dressage riders. Even Western riders interested in enhancing their performance will find these foundational exercises useful. Dressage riders are information-hungry readers, often referred to as “the thinking horsemen.” This book’s sturdy format, combbound and drilled so it can be hung on a ringside post, will appeal to these reading riders, whether in or out of the saddle.

    We have all read and heard that when we work with horses, we should feel like we have all the time in the world. Deadlines should not apply. Appointments, meetings, and dinner dates should wait. After all, on one end of the lead rope is a horse that needs a chance to understand what is being asked of him and enough time to figure out the right answer. But the reality today is that on the other end of the lead rope is a twenty-first-century horse owner, often with a full calendar, a mobile phone, and always one eye on the clock. Day after day we promise to train ourselves and our horses to be better at a specific task, but when we get to the barn or stable, there never seems to be enough time. "Don't worry," says Vanessa Bee, horse trainer and founder of the International Horse Agility Club. "What really matters is the quality of the training you do manage to fit in. It is entirely possible to carry out solid, progressive training with a horse in only three minutes a day." Here, Vanessa shares her own brief, digestible lessons that can ultimately produce significant gains in both horse and human in very short sessions. Her refreshing and realistic method offers 35 ground exercises, 25 ridden exercises, and 15 "real world" scenarios that, in no time, will get you out and about with a safe, sane, well-trained horse.
