This title covers all facets of lateral work as a foundation for a classical training programme. Lateral work is an essential part of any training programme leading to a supple horse. This book offers a step-by-step guide through all of the lateral movements, introducing exercises to prepare horse and rider for the first lateral movements, through to training exercises, as well as stretching and loosening exercises. The exercises are intended for all types of horses - not just those preparing for competition. Following the many examples provided, the rider is taught how to structure a training session, how to ask the horse clearly for the required movements, and with the help of lateral work to systematically educate the horse.
