Can anyone recommend a good book for the absolute basics of dressage? I'm an experienced rider and have done jumping, but never done any dressage. I'd like to learn but my share horse is unschooled and most of the books I've seen talk about leg yield, shoulder-in etc, but what do you actually do with your arms/legs/aids to teach a horse to do this? I will look at some lessons, but would like to read up a bit first so I don't appear completely clueless! Thanks
