I love this book. It makes sense on the page, and sense when I am riding. I've never had a lesson with Tina, but I tried out some of the exercises and they really work. It's as if she remembers what it's like to be an ordinary rider (though she's obviously not an ordinary rider and trainer herself!) and she has designed these exercises to suit the ordinary rider, and the more ambitious one, providing ways to train yourself for that. I also do a bit of teaching, and I tried out some of the simple stuff on my pupils and they loved it too! It's like I've got a never ending pot of ideas at my finger tips. This book will improve your riding no end.
It is a really great book but sometimes Tina gets a little sidetracked by how she uses the exercise rather than explaining how to execute the exercise. With close reading it's possible to figure it all out though. I've incorporated a lot of her teachings into my training now. All in all, I'm glad I bought the book but I feel that unless you're a trainer there are more comprehensive exercise books out there.
Very helpful with some very specific tips to help you and your horse perform your best.
