    Default Books with good flatwork exercises

    I like to limit my horse's jumping to once or twice a week and would love some book suggestions that have lots of good flatwork exercises to help with various problems/change it up.

    101 Jumping Exercises by Linda L Allen has lots of ground pole exercises that are the foundation for good control over fences. Has lots of jump exercises too as you progress.

    101 Dressage Exercises For Horse & Rider by Jec Aristotle Ballou has lots of great flat work ideas.

    Love them both! Mix and match for all my horses when I encounter issues or just need to liven up the dull winter months without actually jumping much. they are great for ideas when you're not working regularly with a trainer too.
