4.0 out of 5 stars Informative 21 Sept. 2013
By Christine Mardini - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There was a lot of valuable information provided in this book. I needed to re-read a lot of the anatomical information provided in the opening chapters of the book for a clear understanding, but the information was supported with helpful drawings. The explanations for how a rider moves, or should move, in saddle and which musculature is used encourages one to think about the proper body positions and gives insight as to how to improve. This book could be read by any level rider, but it would likely be most informative for beginning and intermediate riders. Some common directions given by instructors, and regularly performed by riders, are broken down into anatomical explanations which is also useful. For example, a rider may understand sit tall and sit heavy in the saddle, but may not understand the importance of the small muscular changes that help the rider perform these tasks properly and most effectively. Overall, this book was informative and will assist me as I attempt to break some developing bad habits. I would recommend this book for those who want to have a clearer understanding of how the body moves and works with the horse, but be ready to brush up on your knowledge of human musculature and anatomy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Medeical analysis of Müsseler 15 Nov. 2009
By P. Bosman - Published on
Format: Paperback
The book Reitlehre from Müseler, Parey, 1936 has been the most influential cornerstone under horse riding in western europe. It is thé foundadation under the dressage seat and -teaching and every rider should have studied or study it.

Müseler explains the seat of the rider and his perception of human anatomy leads to confusing vocabulary.
The Schusdziarras analyse what Müseler writes, compair it with human anatomy and make a sound translation of Müseler intentions to correct modern language.
As they analyse the human anatomy they also treat with the difference between male and female anatomy, thus putting the finger on a problem that seems to be universal with women riders.

The ónly mistake in the thinking concerns the stirrups. The Schusdziarras stop their analyse with accepting the incorrect combination open stirrup/demanded foot carriage.
The thinking reader however can easily work this out for him-/herself as the foundation is all there.

The work has sóme fame in German and has contributed to p.e. the development of the thinking by S.G.Solinski and Dr.N.Nicholson, but for the most part is one of those unknown jewels.
I think this book is one of the múst-reads for all trainers and also for riders who seek root information for understanding.
It is thé golden standard for a proper seat in any riding style, or as King Duarte would have put it: for Bem Cavalgar em toda sella.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic must have!! 12 Sept. 2007
By S. Barnett - Published on
Format: Paperback
A classic book on dressage. It gives the reader an in depth look at how to effectively ride a dressage horse through the insights of the human anatomy. I've learned more about the fine details of dressage through this book than years of riding lessons!!! The vocabulary can be technical at times but push on and the end rewards will be well worth it.
