See how your horse moves and become a better rider! Horses are born to move - a foal can walk, trot and gallop within hours of birth. But not all horses move equally well, and the way a horse moves can have a real impact on how you ride. In this unique book, Susan Harris presents more than 300 eye-opening drawings that show you exactly how horses move. She illustrates movements common to all horses, pinpoints movement problems, reveals how a human in the saddle affects a horse's movement and helps you become a better, more accomplished rider. This book helps to: get a close-up look at horse gaits and transitions; observe the differences between good and poor movement; find out how balance and conformation affect movement; view flexion, bending and lateral movements; see the impact of shoeing and riding on movement; and, discover practical tips to improve your horse's movement.
