The Photographic Guide to Schooling Your Horse: A Visual Guide to Training for: Dressage, Jumping, and Western Riding. By Lesley Bayley, Published by David & Charles, 2007.
Find guidance on how to perform a range of schooling exercises in a variety of disciplines. This comprehensive and visual guide gives novice and experienced horse riders alike all the basics they need to get the best from their horses. Exercises such as teaching the horse to flex properly when riding circles and how to change pace without resistance are shown in specially photographed step-by-step sequences. Troubleshooting panels tell readers which mistakes to watch out for and how to put them right. There are also gridwork exercises and advice on using polework to help readers vary a horse's lessons and improve a rider's own position. A final section on Western riding techniques will show how to perform the basic tests required in reining classes, or introduce new ideas to those wishing to cross-train their horses in this growing equestrian field.
