5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have book 21 Dec. 2013
By Lynn W. Bolton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a tiny jewel of wisdom from a great horsemaster. Even so, the book would rate five stars just for the reproduction of the fabulous artwork. Most inspiring. I'm so glad I got it, and the price and service was great.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful meditation on classical horsemanship. 17 Mar. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful little book, and it is terribly sad that it is out of print. Every dressage judge should read it, as well as every rider. Albrecht was a rider at the Spanish Riding School and discusses his experiences there, but most of the book is simply a from-the-heart discussion of the principles and values that should guide dressage training and judging. Albrecht comes back again and again to the core principles of classical equitation that riding should be about addressing the horse's mind and soul, not merely controlling his body, and that the true measure of a performance is not in the external physical movements but in the quiet, trusting harmony between horse and rider. If you are looking for soulless, bean-counting instructions on how many steps should be in a canter pirouete, you won't find it here ... but you will find something far, far more valuable: words of wisdom and experience about horses, life and riding from a great master of the art of classical riding. If more riders, trainers and judges thought like Albrecht, this would be a much kinder and happier world for our patient, long suffering horses! I also highly recommend his other book, Dressage Principles.
