This book presents the heritage of classical theories of riding in a modern, highly readable format. Jean Froissard, one of the world's maters of horsemanship, takes the reader through the development of a dressage horse, dressage in its truest sense, the training of a riding horse. He begins with criteria for selection, then describes fully the progress or early training that is basic for any horse. Building upon what has been learned, there is an emphasis on rewards for even the slightest improvement, over punishment; he then takes the reader through the training progression up to the highest levels of dressage. 130 pages including index; black & white photographs. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
