Better Jumping : Using Gridwork for Success at Every Level Hardback
by Carol Mailer
However competent or experienced you are, you will always want to improve - to jump better.
From being a complete beginner to competing at the highest level, there is always more to be done, and gridwork is the key, the building blocks of a winning partnership.
Jumping trainer Carol Mailer, believes that these and many more problems can be overcome with the help of the grid: * My horse is nappy and bad tempered; is there any chance of him ever competing? * How can I help my horse jump straight? * My new horse was perfect when I bought him. Now he's stopping, running out or charging off with me.
Why is he doing it? * I'm an inexperienced rider with a new horse. How can I form a good partnership when we start jumping? * Why does my horse keep putting extra strides in? * Is there a way to calm my horse down and make him listen to me? * I'm having a job stopping my horse cutting corners.
Any ideas? Packed with exercises for finessing your technique and insightful solutions to classic jumping difficulties, Better Jumping is a wonderfully practical and inspiring book that will set you on the path to success, whatever your level.
