This is probably the best reference book on Classical training that I have come across. I am a western rider who believes that good classical dressage training is a great foundation for any horse. I put this man right up there with the likes of Ray Hunt and Buck Brannaman for his ability to understand what the horse needs, not just the human.
Highly recommended!2011年7月9日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
This book pretty much reads like a good novel: once you pick it up you don't want to put it down. An enjoyable read for anyone who already knows a little bit about horses and dressage, by no means only for the advanced or professional rider. Though Podhajsky does make everything sound awfully easy, and the average part-time equestrian with modest riding skills (such as myself) may get a bit carried away thinking that (miraculously and contrary to vast personal experience) everything is in fact easy, conveniently forgetting that she generally lacks the perfect independent seat which is the first thing the Spanish Riding School riders gain through their perfect training program and which of course is the fundamental prerequisite for great riding. But never mind that. What makes this book very useful for all riders is the wealth of basic theory on dressage and good horsemanship, as well as the detailed practical "how-to" instructions and tips, written in way that's easy to read and understand.
Must read for every dressage rider2013年11月27日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
One of the very best books not only on riding, but on how the process of thinking about riding works. The man is a master and a very good engaging writer. This is not a manual, but a story. Must read for every dressage rider
