Recognizing that modern day dressage has become more of a sport than an art form, this guide advocates for a revival of schooling that emphasises pleasure for both the horse and the rider. The discussion focuses first on how the rider learns in the classical system and then turns to the selection and management of the horse. Addressed to riders of all ages and skill levels--and to animal lovers generally -- this moving appeal successfully showcases a humane riding tradition.

Dr Gerd Heuschmann burst onto the international equestrian scene with his startling exposé Tug of War, in which he demonstrated with words and photographs the disturbing effects of the (then) popular ‘Rollkur’ or ‘hyperflexion’ technique in training dressage horses. In his long-awaited follow-up book, Dr Heuschmann explores what it means to be a ‘responsible rider,’ and asks whether, in today’s society, it is indeed possible for riders in any horse sport to put the good of the horse first and foremost – most pointedly above ambition and fame.With fabulous art to help show the anatomy of the horse and how it is impacted by various riding techniques, as well as further proof that – although some steps have been taken to prevent the use of forceful and cruel techniques in the training of top horses – many sport horses still perform in pain and discomfort, this book is sure to follow in its bestselling predecessor’s footsteps. Dr Heuschmann’s arguments are based in his experience as a veterinarian and his knowledge of the working equine’s body, and are certain to ring true with every serious rider who also claims to be an avid horse lover.

Ten years ago, Dr. Gerd Heuschmann rocked the equestrian world with his international bestseller Tug of war, a searing indictment of modern training and riding techniques that are sometimes used to the detriment of the horse. Now Dr. Heuschmann returns with this new book: a critical examination of two conceptsflexion and bendthat are necessary to understand in absolute terms when the goal is to achieve collection on horseback. Citing the many masters of classical dressage who wrote essays and even entire books about flexion at the horse's poll and longitudinal bend of the horse's body, Dr. Heuschmann strives to conflate the often complex classic literature with the results of his own studies as an expert in equine anatomy and biomechanics, supporting his explanations with precise illustrations and numerous photographs. The outcome is a book that finally makes the concepts of flexion and bendand ultimately, collectioneasy to understand, promising more correct, conscientious riding, better results in training and competition, and happier, healthier horses in the long run.

By understanding how the horse's biomechanics works and how to influence it, most of the misunderstanding between horse and rider is avoidable, and the vast majority of schooling problems solvable. Although in its infancy, equine sport science teaches us how a horse's body and mind functions. Through an understanding of this natural science, together with literature left to us by the classical masters, training horses, without the dependence on gadgets, becomes extremely easy and logical. The knowledge of equine biomechanics turns horse training and riding teaching into a completely logical process.In this work, Karin Blignault investigates the horse's natural methods of performing movements and compares this with the movements he performs in dressage and jumping. Examining each individual gait and movement - including lateral work, piaffe, passage, flying changes - the author highlights the biomechanical difficulties the horse encounters in his effort to please the rider, gives suggestions to riders and trainers on how to overcome these difficulties, and further gives judges pointers on how to recognize these problems.

This book is a story of what I have learned and important points that are not always stressed when you learn about horses and learn how to ride. It also goes on to share the ability of the horse to empower us and how they have over the course of my life always provided a constant source of strength and support. There has never, and I can truly say never a day so far that I have gone to see my horse or go on a ride and I felt worse than before I went to go ride. I’m not going to include trips to the hospitals with that thought, but that is probably the only exception. I feel very fortunate and blessed that I am able to have horses in my life and such a passion for riding horses within me that it remains a constant in my daily life.

Do horses think of the rider on their back as a ‘supporting partner’ or a dangerous predator? Author Ulrike Thiel faces this question head on, putting readers in the horse’s position and allowing them to experience the ‘process’ of being ridden both physically and psychologically. Thiel discusses classical schooling and modern competitive dressage from the horse’s perspective, offering precise advice for bettering the horse-rider relationship based on recent scientific findings in psychomotor education, horse training theory, horse and human biomechanics, and equine behaviour.With the use of exercises and astute comparisons, Thiel gives readers and eye-opening tour of the realm of the ridder dressage horse, ensuring we all work to make the job of ‘being ridden’ part of a mutual pursuit – a dance involving two engaged and caring partners,a friendship binding mind and body.
