Author Alfons J. Dietz

Price £18.00

All the possibilities of groundwork....

In this textbook the interested trainer will find extensive information on all methods of work in hand:

  • lungeing
  • long reining
  • work in hand according to the Iberian school
  • work in hand according to the Viennese school
  • training between pillars
  • work on shortened long reins

There is a wealth of useful information here, attractively and thoughtfully illustrated, including lessons from lateral work, piaffe, passage, Spanish walk and airs above the ground.

The author is an advocate of the view that work in hand should always be applied as an extension of training under the rider.

Alfons J. Dietz was trained in the Spanish riding School in Vienna for eight years.  In Spain and Portugal he became skilled in the Iberian disciplines of Alta Escuela, Doma Vaquera and Rejoneo.  He now lives near Vienna where he is a well-respected trainer of Baroque horses.
