With William Fox-Pitt at the top of the eventing game, having won at Burghley and Bramham already this season, there is no one better placed to offer advice to competitive riders. Full of colour photographs and montaged sequences taken through this year's eventing season, Schooling for Success with provide a clear and practical guide for anyone planning to tackle a one-day event with their horse. This book follows William's career from the early days of riding ponies with his brother and sister, the unknown horses that got him noticed through to his current string of top rides. William offers excellent and unique advice on how anyone keen on eventing can work with their horse to develop results on the big day. He starts with flatwork - by improving the basics at home, you can earn a few extra points in the dressage phase - often the more difficult discipline for event horses. Next showjumping - William explains how he works his own horses to ensure they are careful over light showjumps. Finally cross country - William offers his advice, hints and tips on how to tackle the many different jumps or combinations a one-day eventer might encounter. Throughout this book stunning montaged sequences of William jumping have been included to give the reader a real view of how he approaches, jumps, lands and gets away from a variety of fences. You can clearly see how the horses tackle each fence and how William's position differs depending on the type of obstacle.

Having drooled over William Fox-Pitt since Pony Club I am very disappointed to be giving this book a poor review. My expectations were perhaps too great. The first few chapters (Flatwork, Jumping) and those at the end (At The Competition, Get Your Horse Fit) I felt were a waste of paper. They essentially covered the basics and common sense tips experienced riders already know. Readers can go to other more specialized books for advice on these topics. However, I did enjoy reading more about William's background and early days.

The chapter I wanted more from was Cross Country. This book should have been re-focused as "Cross Country Schooling for Success" and more technical detail could have been added throughout. The take home message was to approach each fence with confidence, look ahead, maintain contact and keep your horse between hand and leg. Stay balanced with a secure lower leg. The text rarely got more detailed than that and training tips "if you look into a ditch, you'll end up in it!" again common sense advice. Experienced riders will want so much more, therefore I think this book will be better for the beginning event rider. But then photographs of advanced level jumps are not immediately relative to them. Also, the short two pages on introducing a young horse to water were basic. I've read a better guide in Practical Horseman magazine.

One of the main problems is that the text is by Kate Green. Although I appreciate many riders have another person write for them, I think you still want to feel that you are paying for William's advice. So you want it to read like William has written it, rather than just put his name to it. Thus when discussing photos of William riding over fences, it should read "Here I came in too fast, my reins got too long" etc etc., rather than "This pair came in too fast" or "This rider let his reins slip". Although many riders are photographed in the book, we can easily pick out William. The book would have a better feel, if it read like he wrote it.

The best part of this book is the excellent use of sequenced photography. There are some great shots and certainly a few photos that will make you cringe. It is nice to visualize where things went wrong, and this can be a great training tool. But I can imagine some of these photos discouraging the nervous rider. Experienced riders may appreciate this book as a good review and relish the photography - as I did.
