Ali Pullin –
This book has become my go to book for helping my students with their jumping, as the way Wendy Murdoch explains things seems to make sense for so many people. The book is well layed out and has a logical progression, but you can also use it to spot fix trouble areas. I also find it useful as a way to help keep my jumping lessons fresh for both horse and student. I like the way Wendy Murdoch explains things and I find that the fixes she suggests usually stick after a few repetitions.
