Product description

About the Author

Highly regarded in Europe, Walter Zettl was trained in Germany under the famous Col. Aust, and has over 40 years of instructional experience in Germany. He came to Canada in 1981 where he was trainer for Eva Maria Pracht, and also served as dressage coach for the Canadian Three-Day team for the L.A. Olympic Games. While teaching lessons and clinics across North America, he was struck by the hunger for knowledge of correct training principles, combined with the difficulties posed by both the vastness of the geographic range and the lack of any organised system for delivering correct information.

I have a weakness for buying and reading books on dressage and so I have quite a library! This book by Walter Zettl quickly became my bible. Its my first port of call when I need to be inspired or when I'm struggling with some aspect of my riding. The author writes beautifully, clearly and with a real sensitivity for horse and rider. I highly recommend this book above all others for the dressage enthusiast at any level.
Enjoy!!

This book is so familiar (it sits on my bedside table) and such a large part of my life that I almost forgot to review it. I bought it in May 2004 when I was struggling to teach my latest young horse the flying change, and it is entirely thanks to this book that we finally accomplished the task. Walter Zettl covers absolutely everything a rider could wish to know about dressage in a logical sequence and there is nothing revolutionary as his method is well anchored in the classical scales of training, but somehow what he says makes sense. In fact, it would be a shame to restrict the use of this manual to dressage riders because all of these principles are equally applicable to anyone who wishes to ride well, regardless of discipline. Zettl writes simply but effectively, with great empathy for the horse, explaining in detail and incorporating many clear diagrams and drawings to illustrate some of the more technical points.

The cover says, "From Basic to Grand Prix" but it is indicative of Zettl's impeccably correct approach that the advanced movements take up less than a third of the book, while the basics make up the bulk. Given the current deplorable state of the sport of dressage at the highest levels, this book should really be required reading for anyone who aspires to become a top rider. As for those who simply aim to become as good riders as they possibly can, all you need to know is in this book.

6.6 contains points that are some of the most fundamental aspects of riding that are so often missed and seem unknown to instructors.
