Recognizing that modern day dressage has become more of a sport than an art form, this guide advocates for a revival of schooling that emphasises pleasure for both the horse and the rider. The discussion focuses first on how the rider learns in the classical system and then turns to the selection and management of the horse. Addressed to riders of all ages and skill levels - and to animal lovers generally - this moving appeal successfully showcases a humane riding tradition.
