5.0 out of 5 stars Gift for a friend.
I have already read this book about 5 times an although it was written many years ago, the principles are just as relevant today as they were then. This book is the benchmark, as far as I am concerned, for horsemanship and equitation. AP shows a sympathy with his horses seldom seen in the age during which it was written. He inspires and educates. You can ask no more...

3.0 out of 5 stars Intermediate Rider

I have already read this book about 5 times an although it was written many years ago, the principles are just as relevant today as they were then. This book is the benchmark, as far as I am concerned, for horsemanship and equitation. AP shows a sympathy with his horses seldom seen in the age during which it was written.

Wonderful pictures, too!

The only sections that I enjoyed reading were those on the use of the double bridle and the riders seat. I was only able to take snippets from the other chapters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic, 24 Dec. 2001
By A Customer
Classic Dressage is also a vision. I have been fortunate enough to be taught by an instructor with this vision, which gave my training planing and consquence.
This is a book in which every sentence has significance...a bible of a sort... together with the references Podhasky mentions....
