"This is a very important book for riders because Heuschmann addresses the current tendency to derail classical dressage riding." --"USDF Connection "(March 14, 2011)Vom Verlag:
German rider and veterinary surgeon Dr Gerd Heuschmann is known for his plain speaking regarding what he deems the incorrect and damaging training methods commonly employed by riders and trainers involved in dressage competition today. Here, he presents an intelligent and thought-provoking exploration of both classical and 'modern' training methods against a practical backdrop of the horse's basic anatomy and physiology.He then outlines his ideal 'physiological education' of the horse: one where training and riding mirror the mental and physical development of the horse, fulfilling 'classical' requirements - such as regularity of the three basic gaits, suppleness, and acceptance of the bit - rather than disregarding time-tested values for quick fixes that could lead to the degradation of the horse's well-being. Dr Heuschmann's assertion that the true objectives of dressage schooling must never be eclipsed by simple 'mechanical perfection' is certain to inspire riders at all levels to examine their riding, their riding goals, and the techniques they employ while pursuing them.
