There are many reasons that riders find themselves training their horses independently, whether because they simply enjoy doing it that way, don’t have a trainer they like near by, don’t have the money for lessons and training, or a million other things. These books are my favorites for when I’m working on my own. They are beautifully illustrated and discuss each movement individually from basic to advanced. Pictures and descriptions of how each movement should look, as well as signs that they aren’t being done correctly make it easy to educate yourself between lessons, and having that background understanding will help you get more out of your lessons when you do take them. When you’re working on your own for a longer period, these books also offer help with different challenges that can come up, as well as ideas for overcoming the challenges. You’ll also find arena exercises and patterns to help keep you and your horse progressing.
