Improve your dressage skills, day by day.
Dressage is the ultimate achievement of oneness between horse and rider. This training manual offers tips and exercises for achieving that oneness, for both classical dressage riders and the wider audience of English and Western equestrians.
The book's unique format, with an arena diagram or drawing illustrating each exercise, allows the rider to hang it on a hook or drape it across a barrel and refer to it from the saddle. Several chapters address different dressage goals such as looseness, balance, straightness, suspension, and lightness. Others focus on improving rider position, lengthening the stride, and perfecting flying changes
Jec Aristotle Ballou has trained dressage horses of all breeds and taught riders of all levels for 20 years. She ran her own classical riding school in Vermont for several years and now trains Andalusians and Lusitanos in California. She has written for many publications including Chronicle of the Horse, Dressage Today, Western Horseman, and more.
