Free sample

Horses are athletes, and as with all athletes, it takes them years of training every day to become strong, supple, and focused enough to climb to the top. In Hints for Hopeful Dressage Riders, author Jane Richards presents a toolbox of exercises to help both horse and rider train and improve through basic dressage.

With more than fifty years of experience teaching and training with horses, Richards helps horse lovers succeed in their riding goals. Hints for Hopeful Dressage Riders provides a host of tips to help both novices and the more experienced riders to:

purchase a suitable horse; find the correct position and effective aids; learn training techniques; recognize signs of discomfort; solve common riding problems; practice useful exercises; understand the importance of the lunge line; and discover clinics and showing.

Hints for Hopeful Dressage Riders addresses the everyday problems riders may encounter at the lower levels of dressage. Richards offers solutions that contribute to enhance the performance and enjoyment of all horses and riders.

The book has useful information for all riders of all disciplines. The balanced seat is the safest form of riding as opposed to gripping in order to stay on, whether or not one is riding dressage with a longer stirrup length. The techniques and exercises for the horse are to improve strength, suppleness and become balanced which are important for all disciplines. They also help the horse to focus on the rider and become more obedient and in doing so become safer and more enjoyable to ride.
