Dressage has enjoyed a long and colourful history and is today more popular than ever. The Allen Illustrated Encyclopaedia of Dressage offers general guidance on the development and practice of dressage, both in its pure sense as ‘training’ and in its newer role as a competitive sport. Accordingly, it contains biographical entries of eminent trainers, authors and competitors, past and present, from many countries. It also contains explanations of dressage terms and references to the rules of competition, with notes that the latter may vary in points of detail depending upon the organizing body concerned and the precise nature of the test. The entries are attractively illustrated throughout with contemporary photographs and pictures of personalities from former eras and a range of drawings and engravings taken from books written by those mentioned within.

This first international encyclopaedia of the dressage world will be of great value to those seeking information on specific points of dressage, and is fascinating reading for those interested in the historical development of the discipline and the progress and achievements of many of its key figures. Comprehensive and engaging, it is an essential addition to every dressage lover’s bookshelf.
