Model Number: 9780901366993
Although this book is written specifically for aspiring young competitors, all riders at the beginning of their dressage careers, whatever their age, will find the clear, straightforward explanations invaluable.
The no-nonsense text strips away the mystique surrounding the art of dressage riding and explains in simple terms how to set about improving your own performance and that of your horse or pony. With the help of over 100 illustrations the author guides you through the basics of the rider’s position, obedience in the horse/pony, straightness, balance, rhythm, tempo and impulsion, the meaning of ‘on the bit’, collection and lateral work.
For budding competitors there is advice on riding a test, overcoming nerves and understanding what the judge is looking for.
Reading Dressage for the Young Rider could be the first step to achieving success as a dressage rider.
