What exactly is it that you would like to learn more about by reading these books? What type of riding will you be doing? How well trained is your horse? Do you want to learn more about riding or training?

When you are sitting a top a horse, you are that much closer to God.

My favorite book is "True Horsemanship Through Feel" By Bill Dorrance and Leslie Desmond

Toymanator, that is a great book, should be required reading if you're even remotely interested in training a horse, but I don't think it's what the original poster is looking for. Cinm, the Modern Horsemans countdown to broke is about as step by step a training book as I've seen, but not really a troubleshooting manual. Maybe look into Leslie Pavlich's Colt starting the natural horse, she uses clicker training to train, but there is a bit of troubleshooting in it that might give you some usefull ideas. Otherwise look Into Jessica Jahiels' books: The horse behaviour problem solver, The horse training problem solver. More traditional problem solving ideas.
