I'm looking for some suggestions in regards to what beginner books I should purchase? I will be taking up horseback riding lessons in the very near future and would like to take in as much information as possible before I mount a horse.
Some of my riding friends have suggested:
Centered Riding by Sally Swift
Complete Horse Riding Manual by William Micklem.
I've looked into both of these books and Centered Riding is referenced as one of the must own books, however I'm not sure how helpful it will be in "preparing" me for my lessons as it seems aimed at someone who is already riding? The other book, Complete Horse Riding Manual is aimed primarily at English riders and it seems to cover everything from the very basics to more experienced topics...
Any recommendations would be much appreciated! :)
