training books

I'm trying to find a book on "excersizes" that was written more currently. I want a book that shows basic things to do to keep your horse supple and forward moving and what not. I do take weekly lessons and my trainer does send me home w/ homework but riding daily I just run out of things to do... I would like to find a book of ideas...

Any suggestions?

"Be a best friend, tell the truth, and overuse I love you
Go to work, do your best, don't outsmart your common sense
Never let your prayin knees get lazy
And love like crazy"

I think Cherry Hill has a book called 101 Arena Exercises, or something like that. She has several other exercise and pattern books, as well, some specifically for one discipline or another, some designed for certain rider or horse proficiency levels. I have her 101 Lunging and Long Lining Exercises, and it's pretty good.

I like Building a Better Athlete. It's only 20 exercises, but they are all very useful.

101 Dressage Exercises and my most recent fav is Common Sense Dressage! The second one goes into mechanics and explanations for how you ride horses and the effect of the rider on the horse. Excellent book.
