Format: Paperback
This is brilliant! I howled, envisaging myself and the obliging Dougal (my 16.2, somewhat unaware of his dressage superbity thoroughbred!!!!!!) doing a 'far more lucid' transition from canter to trot....

Brian McKeown has dressage down to a T... or maybe a coffee... I can't try this without one!

I read this book on a trip from Scotland to Cumbria, crying with laughter all the way, reading out passages to my somewhat disinterested husband, and howling at his lack of response...

BUY IT!

I've written to the author, so amused was I!

No hints on dressage training, but a good re-grounding about the frivolity of it all!

Happy half pass!

Format: Paperback
A fabulously funny book on, what must be accepted, a fairly unknown sport. Though not claiming to know nuch about dressage, I was hugely entertained by this wry look at this sport's world through the eyes of a husband, looking for the bright side of mucking out! A book for dressage fans, dog fans and well, husbands. I highly recommend it :)

Read the reviews and my expectations were high - maybe that was the problem! This book just didn'y tickle me at all -I seemed to speed read the boring bits and was at the end of the book before I knew it. Not impressed. Currently reading In the pink which other have bought and it is laugh out loud - what I was expecting with Enter at A - but sadly not a snigger - not even a smirk I am afraid!

Gosh - this should be a definite 5 stars for content, but why the awful typeface? The person responsible for that should be made to read this - ouch!

Aside from the headache inducing, very *very* annoying type, the book is exquisitely funny and very accurate (in my personal experience anyhow)

Love the content, hate the print.

The Other Side of Dressage 11 Jan. 2007
By P. Haley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Brian writes what many dressage-husbands go through without public comment - the life behind women and their horses. He describes the simplest aspects (for example cleaning stalls) of having horses and asks himself penetrating and humorous questions. This book kept me laughing throughout and my horse-husband agreed with many of Brian's assessments. An easy and delightful read.

Still Laughing! 29 Jun. 2009
By Joanne M. Friedman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is simply a must-have for any English rider, dressage or not. It's a series of hilarious essays, so don't expect coherence or training advice. If you don't wind up laughing at yourself when you're finished, you really need a break from dressage!

I enjoyed the book because sometimes as a Dressage Rider I just need a little humor to lighten things up a bit. Shipment was very fast and price was good.
