Product description

Whatever discipline you ride, the secret in training horses eventually lies in the 'why'. Why do we ride 20-metre circles? Why do we perform shoulder-in? Without understanding a movement's purpose, it's of little use to the correct, systematic, physical and mental development of the horse. In this fantastically detailed and uniquely organised new book, Olympic multi-gold-medal-winner Isabell Werth helps demonstrate the 'what', 'how', and - most importantly - 'why' of over 100 dressage movements. She shows you how each should look, explains common mistakes and how to avoid them, and then describes the benefit of the exercise and how it contributes to the dressage training scale. In addition, emphasis is placed on the horse as an individual and how to customize movements and lessons to benefit any animal, with his particular physical and psychological characteristics in mind. Formatted as a practical and easy-to-follow reference, this fantastic book promises to take the mystery out of dressage schooling forever.
