"The price of $19.95 is extremely reasonable for a book with this much information along with splendid photos and illustrations." --Horsemen's Yankee Pedlar
From the Back Cover
Dressage as Art in Competition provides a detailed analysis of a training program designed-and proven-to take a horse to the highest level. Throughout, John Winnett stresses the need to treat each horse as an individual, and his valuable insights into the nuances of competition deal not only with the movements themselves but also with how to ride them to optimum effect on horses of differing conformation and temperament. A major theme of the book is the emphasis upon dressage as art, and Winnett stresses that this principle must be remembered amid the diverse pressures of producing horses for competition. Here is a book that translates the beauty of classical equitation for the riders of today. (6 1/4 x 9 1/4, 224 pages, b&w photos, illustrations)See all Product description

I'm just gonna tell y'all now -- Classical can be and IS competitive, and trying to merge so-called modern dressage and classical is going to be a nightmare, purely because modern dressage comes at training completely wrong. To those interested in classical riding, you'd probably want to steer clear of this -- unless you're confident enough in your classical foundation to sift through this and find anything that's good.
