“I feel proud to see my riders go further than I have …. I feel very proud to be part of their journey” Jo Winfield

Advice is given on making a critical assessment for a horse, and evaluating its strengths and weaknesses as a potential event horse. The book covers how to build on what your horse is naturally capable of achieving, with a view to putting together a suitable training plan for all phases of eventing.
