Dressage Priority Points: Training and Competition by Richard Davison
Model Number: 9781853614170
Dressage: Priority Points is a concise guide designed to steer you through all the difficulties likely to be encountered in the making and competing of the dressage horse. It does not replace a practical training system but supports it by highlighting the priories – the key points to remember – with valuable summary charts for specific movements.
This well-structured guide covers important areas, often overlooked, such as preparation and warming up at competitions, rider psychology, and actual test riding. The lively informative text is backed up with useful diagrams. Stunning photographs of world class dressage horses and riders, in training and competition, are used to illustrate winning points for every rider. Richard Davison also reveals interesting behind-the-scenes glimpses of international competition.
The book is not restricted to any particular standard of equitation and is invaluable for riders, judges, teachers and dressage supporters alike.
While other books, once read, gather dust on the shelf, Dressage: Priority Points is for everyday reference and will be seen in the tack room, horse box or even on the grandstands.
