The Beginning Dressage Book grew out of the real-life experience of Kathryn Denby-Wrightson, a professional trainer, teacher and judge, and Joan Fry, a backyard horse owner who sought to make riding a more rewarding experience for herself and her mount. That's what dressage is all about. It's a method of training that develops the horse's natural abilities - the way it moves and balances itself - so that it will seat his rider comfortably at any gait and is easily controlled under any circumstances. With the help of this practical, down-to-earth handbook you will be able to develop your own riding skills and reeducate your horse into a smooth, relaxed, responsive horse who is a joy to ride. And you can do it easily and inexpensively in your own backyard.Denby-Wrightson, Kathryn is the author of 'Beginning Dressage Book Expert Advice on How to Train Your Horse in Dressage Without Expensive Equipment' with ISBN 9781592280407 and ISBN 1592280404.
