Author Arthur Kottas-Heldenberg Julie Rowbotham
Price £25.00

Kottas on Dressage is a distillation of the practice and philosophy of one of the most highly regarded international trainers of the current era.

Having sressed the need for the rider to establish correct posture and a thorough understanding of the aids before attempting to train the horse, the book goes on to high light the value of establishing rapport with the horse and enhancing his mental responses and developing his physique with groundwork before progressing to work under saddle.

Following this, the text focuses on thorough incremental development of the basic gaits, explains the value and execution of the lateral exercises and introduces advanced work including tempi changes, pirouettes, piaffe and passage.  

Throughout the text there are many notes, based on the author's experience, of precisely how to address points of details.  A number of commonly encountered problems are also analysed, and remedies offered

Underpinning the whole text is the author's fundamental stance on horses and training: 'I always see the horse as a partner.  He must be trained slowly and patiently.'  This book will prove instructive to all who empathise with this view and aspire to the development of classical principles.
