A bit of a spin off from the frame thread...

There were some books mentioned there, so I'm curious as to what everyone's favourite exercise books are for young warmbloods.

Go nuts :)

Not sure that training the young warmblood is much different than training the young horse, so....

Agreed on Pippa's book. I have that and find it very useful.

Also:

Klimke's Basic Training of the Young Horse (http://www.amazon.com/Basic-Training-Young-Horse-Competition/dp/0851319270/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1302399359&sr=1-1)
and
Klimke's Cavaletti (http://www.amazon.com/Cavalletti-Revised-Schooling-Horse-Ground/dp/0851317553/ref=sr_1_4?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1302399359&sr=1-4)

And if they are jumping already I find the 101 Jumping exercises and Jimmy Wofford's Gymnastics book very useful.

Um, sorry that my title was too specific? If you have fantastic books about training Quarter Horses, by all means...

I suppose I meant more WB/Sport Horse geared disciplines... i.e., hunters, jumpers. Not sure of the relevance of your post.

My point was that training a young horse is pretty much the same across breeds in the intial stages and then become discipline specific. Rarely does it become breed/registry specific. I just thought it was a weird question.

What level is the horse at? Not yet backed, 30 days, 90 days, w/t/c, small jumps?

For instance, I would recomment Linda Allen's book 101 Jumping Exercises but if the horse only has 30 days on it, it wouldn't be the best recommendation.

Looking for books for exercises for young warmbloods/sport horses in the jumper discipline. But, there are also many great exercises that are geared more towards hunter and/or dressage disciplines, hence the general question about young warmbloods.

Thanks for the suggestions so far. I always love reading new material. :)

there you can find most translation of german books

and i highly recommend:
-The book(s) of Michel Robert (I just read the first one, and loved it....so many Aha-moments)
-Principles of riding book 1 and 2
-Training the modern Jumper- Elmar Pollmann-Schweckhorst (a young Classic)
-101 for Jumpers....
