Author Walter Zettl

"My approach in teaching and training, as well as in this book, is that of complete sympathy for the horse and devotion to its happiness and well being.  In this book, I attempt to educate riders to make their horses happy, confident and proud to work for them.  Force and battling have no place in my training method.  I speak with absolute certainty on this point because I have witnessed its success for 50 years and have sadly watched the effects of rough, insensitive and impatient methods on these patient animals.  I believe in dressage as art, and I have practised that art throughout my professional life.  That is why I entitled my book Dressage in Harmony."

As Egon von Neindorf, a recognized master himself, says in the Foreword, "If you are not fortunate enough to be taught by Walter Zettl personally, he gives you in his book a very valuable guide to the art of classical riding.  In clearly worked out and easy to understand chapters, he takes you through each step of the training stages, discusses problems that occur, and assists with competent, sensible corrections, from beginner to becoming a master.  With Walter Zettl's guidance, it is made possible."

Highly regarded in Europe, Walter Zettl was trained in Germany under the famous Col. Aust, and has over 40 years of instructional experience in Germany.  He came to Canada in 1981 where he was trainer for Eva Maria Pracht, and also served as dressage coach for the Canadian Three-Day team for the L.A. Olympic Games.

While teaching lessons and clinics across North America, he was struck by the hunger for knowledge of correct training principles, combined with the difficulties posed by both the vastness of the geographic range and the lack of any organised system for delivering correct information.  This book was written to meet that need, and to serve as both complete treatise and a handy reference book.
