Book Description

16 Sep 1999
This long-awaited sequel to "Riding towards the Light" is an absorbing biomechanical and philosophical treatise on riding and training dressage horses. Using state-of-the-art findings, it debunks many commonly held dressage myths; it also explores the artistic heritage and antique techniques of classical riding which have stood the test of time. Each chapter offers fascinating discussion on a different aspect of riding/training, with many thought-provoking ideas for today's riders. Chapters include: A fog of walks; The hovering trot; Rockin' and rollin' in the passage; The piaffe; Lateral work - in search of the mother load; Deep work; Confucius and the canter pirouette; Resistance and ethics; The myths of the outside rein; and, Riding as a meditation. Basing his theories on a study of biomechanics and rare historic literature, the author begins to point a way through some of the contradictory and confusing tenets that exist in the world of dressage today. In "Exploring Dressage Technique", Paul Belasik offers some refreshing new ideas and revives a few forgotten ones. This book will be welcomed by thinking riders everywhere, by those involved in the sport of dressage, and above all, by those who care deeply about horses.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting 8 Dec 2012
By unassailable - Published on Amazon.com

Not exactly what I was expecting in this book, far more a story of the authors experiences in studying the upper level movements than a real tutorial of technique. Certainly had some thought provoking ideas for the upper level rider, would be a little beyond anyone who hasn't ridden FEI.

5.0 out of 5 stars An American Master 17 Jan 2000
By Kathleen Stoken, - Published on Amazon.com
Paul Belasik is an american master to reckon with. His insight and experience gives him a unique classical approach to continuing in ones' own journey of classical riding. A must have book for any serious dressage enthusiast.
