Hunter Seat Equitation by George Morris

My book came in the mail today! I am saving it to start reading until we start our trip to Jamaica on Monday, which starts with a 15 hour drive down to Florida, blech.

I am very excited to read it and I plan on taking copious notes. Haha I have to get back into the swing of studying one way or another!

I have one of the old saddleseat equitation books (since that's what I rode) and everything is highlighted, underlined, with tons of notes in the side margins or quotes. Sometimes this way of "destroying" the books makes them all the more valuable to you!

Challenge me, Dare me, or even defy me. But do NOT underestimate me...
For on the back of my horse nothing is impossible!

Oh I am absolutely bringing a pen and a highlighter. I am always hesitant to put that first mark in the book, but once I do it I love it. My brother found my summer reading book from senior year, as he is going into senior year this year, and he said my notes were helpful for the first half.

For the second half, I would just underline funny or weird phrases and write "ha". Apparently I got bored of actually annotating hahaha

Love that book! I also recomend Geoff Teall's book "Riding Hunters, Jumpers, and Eqitation."
