about this item

Dressage has moved beyond the basics of just riding and training a horse, and now encompasses many complementary disciplines, including psychology. Technical skills need to go hand in hand with mental commitment, discipline, dedication, and resilience. This book introduces the idea that aids are just that: they let the horse know what the rider wants. When this is understood, the horse should be allowed to do whatever has been asked of him, until something else is required or the horse needs a reminder. The pursuit of excellence—not perfection—is what dressage is all about. Advanced Dressage Training offers advice and encouragement towards the improvement and development of a rider and their horse as an advanced partnership, taking both towards excellence in the process.
