I really liked this book. However, I am relatively new to dressage and some of the terms or phrases were ones that I never heard of before. It listed other books to read that would point you in the right direction of learning more about dressage. The book is also the perfect size that you could take to the barn or toss in your bag. It had really nice pictures and diagrams. I would recommend this book to someone who has been riding for a while so that the terms and key words can be understood.
