Good books

What are some horse related book recommendations you guys have? Preferably training, horse exercises, etc and/or rider skills, exercises, etc. What are the best you've read? What were they about and how we're they useful?

Thanks guys!

I really got a ton of good use from John Lyon's 'Communicating with Cues' series. My trainer gave them to me when I was a green rider on a green horse. Don't let JL's cowboy hat/persona trick you into thinking his techniques are Western only as they definitely aren't.

I really liked the imagery and over all approach of Sally Swift's Centered Riding. It's all about improving yourself, as a rider.

Thanks guys, both sound interesting. Any other suggestions?

I second Sally Swift's book. It is a classic.

I also like "A good horse is never a bad color" by Mark Rashid, or any of his books are entertaining and will give you some food for thought, but no specific excersizes.

There are many more books , but they are more specific to dressage .

I like just about anything by Mary Wanless, too.
