Product Description

About the Author

Karin Blignault started riding in her early twenties and had competition success in showjumping, horse trials and dressage. She competes in high level dressage, teaches riding and participates in equestrian seminars. Having studied occupational therapy, Karin took a diploma in the education of children with learning difficulties and then studied neuro-developmental therapy. Following this she went on to lecture on the development of visual perception and learning theory. Karin became increasingly aware of the parallels between communication techniques and the facilitation of movement in disabled children, and the key concepts of classical equitation. Further exploration of these parallels, in which she combined her knowledge of anatomy and neurology with her equestrian expertise, led to her writing the highly acclaimed Successful Schooling: Train Your Horse with Empathy, after which she produced Stretch Exercises for Your Horse, both published by J.A. Allen.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and have learnt so much from it. I cannot recommend it highly enough. I have had many lessons over the years and have been confused and in the dark over expressions such as 'make him sit down behind','inside leg to outside hand' and 'make him seek the contact'.

What did it all mean and why did we need to ride the horse in this way. It has unravelled the mystery! I knew balance and gravity came into it but really didn't understand the greater significance. I have read several books over the years and had learnt a lot, but this is the first book that really opens the door to greater understanding regarding horse movement and why so called evasions arise. I now believe that I have more empathy and understanding when schooling my horse and have a far better idea as to how to address schooling issues. I think this is essential reading for any riderwanting to improve the way they ride and train their horse. I feel I have taken a massive step forward in my knowledge and have gained a far deeper understanding of horses and how to ride them correctly and sympathetically. Karin writes so well and her style is very easy to read and understand. I have bought the other books she has written on the basis of how good this book is. I await her next book eagerly!

This book is very good. I would think it would be excellent if you were doing any educational studies in this subject. I am not at all academic and still found this book very informative and easy to read. It was also a great help with my riding and I have enjoyed a big improvement with my horse.

I'm studying for a Diploma in Sports Therapy and Remedial Massage for horses and wanted a better understanding of the effects of riding on the horse, to better understand the possible causes of injury. This book is cleary and beautifully written and covers aspects of the rider and horse relationship that I haven't found so clearly described anywhere else.
