101 Dressage Exercises

101 Dressage Exercises
By Jec Aristotle Ballou

Dressage, the equestrian practice in which a horse makes highly precise movements in response to barely perceptible signals from the rider, has taken hold of Americas equestrians. Participation rates have risen by 200 percent over the past twenty years, as baby-boomer riders have discovered dressage to be less strenuous and dangerous than jumping, yet offering the satisfaction of mastering techniques and the opportunity to compete and advance to higher levels of achievement. 101 Dressage Exercises for Horse Rider, presented in Storeys highly visual Read Ride format, features a full arena diagram and stepby- step instructions for each exercise.
