Product description

Review

"For a long time now there has been a requirement for such a book--unreservedly dedicated to the well-being of the horse, despite training to the very highest level. It should become standard reading for every dedicated horse lover." --Klaus Balkenhol, Olympic gold medalist and coach to the U.S. dressage team

"You'll get some great advice on training your horse in a sensitive and time-tested way. Beran effectively brings classical principles into the 21st century." --"Horsemen's Yankee Pedlar"

"Beran provides readers a twenty-first-century classical riding how-to guide. Throughout, gorgeous color photographs demonstrate movements and lessons on horses at various stages of schooling." --"Equine Journal"

Synopsis

Recognizing that modern day dressage has become more of a sport than an art form, this guide advocates for a revival of schooling that emphasises pleasure for both the horse and the rider. The discussion focuses first on how the rider learns in the classical system and then turns to the selection and management of the horse. Addressed to riders of all ages and skill levels - and to animal lovers generally - this moving appeal successfully showcases a humane riding tradition.
