Author Paul Doliveux
Publisher J. A. Allen
Price £22.00

A tandem is thought to be the most challenging combination to drive, and certainly the most difficult to drive well.  In this book Paul Doliveux has brought together a wealth of knowledge and understanding from a number of related disciplines to help the tandem driver, whether novice or advanced, succeed in this art.

A student of the great Nuno Oliveira in dressage, Dr Doliveux applies his experience of riding and training dressage horses to the schooling of horses for tandem driving.  He gives full and clear descriptions of methods of lungeing, long-reigning and whip handling, and - of vital importance - very detailed instructions on the methods of rein handling.  Supported by many diagrams, these instructions cover both one-handed and two-handed techniques and describe the necessary steps for turning left and right at various angles.

As well as discussing suitable breeds of horse, different carriages and types of harness, different carriages and types of harness, the author covers much historical detail and includes anecdotes which are both amusing and enlightening.  He devotes several chapters co competition, including all aspects of FEI driving trials, showing and advanced dressage.

Written in a delightful and personal style, this book will appeal not only to tandem drivers and drivers of other combinations, but to all horsemen interested in the psychology and physiology of the horse and in gaining insights into the finer points of equitation.
