This review could have been the shortest ever written. One word would have sufficed Wow! Before I had read a word of the text I was hooked on this book. It is a joy to look through, full of fabulous colour photographs printed on glossy paper. Just a quick glimpse is enough to show the reader how much Klimke s love for her horses and equestrian sport are very much in evidence. The cover image says it all; a joyful rider with a huge smile and her horse full of controlled power and spirit looking as if he would be grinning too. The subtitle title of this book is An Olympic Medalist s Winning Methods for a Joyful Riding Partnership. The book does exactly what it says on the tin. This isn t a book to learn now to train your horse or to ride better, but it is certainly a vital one to help riders understand that riding shouldn t be forced, it is a celebration of the bond and should be required reading for anyone who competes. --Louise Broderick
This isn't a standard how-to dressage text. Instead, it's the closest most of us will come to spending an extended period of time in the Klimke stable. Klimke takes us through 'My Guiding Principles for Training,' including the equipment and the people who help keep Team Klimke and its horses happy and healthy. She discusses the elements of her training programs, from cavaletti to jumping exercises. In the final third of the book perhaps the most fascinating Klimke discusses 'My Horses: Character Types from Shy to Go-Getter.' She introduces some of her top horses, and outlines her training plan for each horse. It's a wonderful insight into a top rider's training decisions and how she customizes the work to suit the individual horse. --USDF Connection
Olympic gold-medal-winner Ingrid Klimke was born under a bright star when it came to fulfilling dreams of equestrian greatness. --Northwest Horse Source
