Few words, but beautiful pictures. Not really much training advice,but great book to train your eye to true correct at each level/age. Pictures are worth a thousand words, they say.

5.0 out of 5 stars more usefull than you think! 5 Jun. 2001
By Michelle Cavanaugh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is full of large photos of what dressage should look like and in my years of riding I can tell you a picture is worth a thousand words. Every trainer in the country uses all the same words but unless his horses look like these he is incorect, it is that simple. The poll is the highest point always and the head should never be bent past the vertical. Klimke did a great job of collecting pictures of real horese being schooled in dressage corectly something few trainers bother to do nowdays anywhere in the world. Use your eyes and you can learn volumes from this slim work!

3.0 out of 5 stars If you are looking for a practical book, this is not it! 29 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
If, on the other hand, you are looking for lots of pictures of great riders and equally great horses, this is it! It is a beautiful book with a lot of photographs and very little text. It takes the reader through the 'ideal' developmental stages of dressage but without detail. I was looking for more practical words of wisdom on how to achieve the pictured perfection, but found none.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Photographs of the various stages of Dressage 19 Aug. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is one of the most beatifully photographed books on dressage and horse sports in general available. Even if you are not a dressage lover, the chronicle of the developing horse will be of interest. This book includes some very rare photographs of some of dressage's great equine and human athletes. With the untimely demise of Dr Klimke the book will certainly be more difficult to obtain.
