In this major work, Sylvia Loch traces the colourful and superblye legant tradition of classical riding from its early beginnings in the time of Xenophon, through the Baroque splendour of equitation in seventeenth centuryGermany and Austro-Hungary, to its flowering in France, Spain, Portugal and England.  In the twentieth century, Alois Podhajsky, Nuno Oliviera and other great masters continued to practise and teach at the pinnacle of the art; while in recent years Reiner Klimke, Margit Ott0-Crepin and Jennie Loriston-Clarke, among medal winners at international level, have carried the classical tradition into modern competition dressage which now plays an important part in the Olympic Games, Sylvia Loch also discusses the spead of interest in dressage in the USA, Hungary, Denmark, Holland, Belgium, Australia and South Africa, among other countries.

Here then is a magnificent evocation of classical riding over two thousand years which has developed against a tapestry of constant change in the lives of riders of every generation.  Sylvia Loch's book is a passionate plea for the classical tradition of the great masters to continue to be the inspiration for modern riders seeking to attain the highest standards in the intense competition of modern dressage.
