Description - Long Reining by Alfons Dietz
Long reining, or lungeing, might be thought of as a means of training a horse at a safe distance, from the ground. The horse is controlled by means of extended double reins and is made to circle its trainer, who is thus able to observe every aspect of the horse's gait. Long reining is used for exercising lame or convalescing horses, for correcting poor gait, and for training horses in dressage. This book illustrates and describes in detail the various aspects of this sometimes complex but invaluable training aid. * Essential reading for anyone actively involved in training horses - those who run riding schools, or whose work involves dealing with injured or unfit horses. * Completely details and illustrates the complexity of this equestrian technique. * Cadmos Horse Guides are a new series of basic equestrian manuals: essential reading for anyone, adult or youngster, who is learning to ride or who already rides and wishes to know more. The books are attractively packaged, inexpensively priced and illustrated in full colour throughout.
