The relationship between horse and rider is akin to dance partners; to perform at their best, each must trust the other’s physical strength and agility to execute the movements expected. A consistent exercise program for both horse and rider, like that detailed here, provides a solid foundation for building that trust. Demonstrated through color photographs, each exercise has a clear objective, such as improving rhythm, gaining strength, or adding explosiveness to the horse’s jump. A section on troubleshooting existing problems helps to diagnose and correct inefficiencies in the animal’s gait and reveals the impact of incorrect riding posture. There’s information on training aids and equipment, and a chapter on equine physiology.
