Publisher Comments:

Cherry Hill has done it again: created a one-of-a-kind equestrian workbook that's sure to become a standard in the field. 101 Arena Exercises is a ringside exercise book for riders who want to improve their own and their horses's skills. The book is presented in unique "read-and-ride" format that allows it to be hung like a calendar for quick and easy reference.

Exercises — suitable for both English and Western riders — progress naturally from simple, basic skills such as the "Working Walk and Jog" to the more advanced "Two Squares" and "Flying Change." Hill presents recognized classic exercises along with her original patterns and maneuvers, offering a wide variety of useful drills for anyone who rides. In addition, 101 Arena Exercises is a valuable workbook for trainers and instructors interested in exploring new teaching methods.

Riding drills included are:

* Collected Canter

* Long and Low

* Loosen Up

* Circle and Leg Yield

* Trot-Halt-Back-Walk

* Zigzag Half Pass

* Long Serpentine

* Rollback

* Spiral

* Figure 8
