Smile American system of foward riding

I recently got a gift card to Barnes & Noble, and I am looking for an equitation book. I am interested in the american system of foward riding training series. Has anyone seen the DVD's? Does anyone have an suggestion for an eq book?

I love Alexis, Bindi and Maggie!

If you want to learn the North American style of riding, I highly suggest you look at George Morris. He has written quite a few book on Equitation. I am sure he has DVD's out there - what I suggest is googling him and seeing what you get book wise.

I went to for you and this is the list I got:
You can look at what books you are interested in and see if Barns And Noble carries them or can order them in for you.

SO, I already have 101 jumping excersizes, and Hunt Seat Eq by george morris. I was thinking of getting another george morris book, but i was thinking that his hunter seat eq was so full of info, that his other books only would really emphisize what he was saying in hunter seat eq!?! Has anyone seen american system of foward riding? I am really interested in that.... or anyother segestion? Thanks!

I love Alexis, Bindi and Maggie!

There is a Frank Chapot book I read, can't remember the title, but it's not just about equitation, more an overall book on show jumping. It's got a pic of Gem Twist on the cover if that helps.

There are these great exercise books that other people have mentioned, I think. There is the 101 Dressae exercises for horse and rider but I felt like some of these exercises were a bit advanced, especially if your horse is a bit green. I really enjoyed the 101 Jumping exercises for horse and rider by Linda L. Allen (with Dianna R. Dennis). Since the exercises start simple but slowly build up while teaching the rider, as well as the horse.
