Working towards suppleness & confidence. Oliver Hilberger.
For anyone training a horse in dressage, classically based in-hand work is a valuable but unfortunately often undervalued part of its education. It is a rarely used tool, but one which variation to the everyday routine and schools both the horse and trainer. This book explains step-by-step and with clear illustrations the straightforward way towards the correct training of horses, working from the ground. Particular emphasis is given to the description of lateral movements, which for a supple horse as well as for the preparation towards the more advanced movements, play a central role.
