8 Rees, Lucy The Fundamentals of Riding
031206750X / 9780312067502; The fundamentals of riding are not contained in a simple list of steps, like the rules for using a computer or fixing a car. The basis of riding is the symbiosis of two living creatures, horse and human. Riding is too often taught as though the horse was a piece of machinery, with the result that riders, especially as they advance, have little understanding of the subtly different requirements for each riding style, or why the horse responds as it does. This is a visual guide for both the beginner and advanced rider that shows you how a horse without a rider moves naturally; you feel the horse's movements when riding; how you direct the horse's movements and affect it's balance. This book also teaches you to achieve all the basic movements in European and Western riding, jumping, and dressage. Over 300 pictures and authoritative text combine to make a book that's useful and fascinating for all riders. Includes a glossary, bibliography, and index. The end papers show the parts of the horse. The deep green binding has a tiny white spot on the front. Small 4to. ; 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall
