Training the Horse in Hand
The Classical Iberian Principles
The origins of modern dressage lie in the Classical style of riding as practised at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna; this book goes back to those roots, showing how horses can be trained in hand - without a rider, using the lunge or long rein. Although most equestrian hobbyists do not practice these specialist training methods themselves, the principles involved are of exceptional interest to dressage enthusiasts and traditional trainers. As a result, this textbook is more than a practical training manual; it is an attractive reading package with excellent colour photographs. The author trained at the Spanish Riding School for eight years; he continued his training in Spain & Portugal; today he trains riders near Vienna.
