Equitainment's Comments

I don't usually push any of the technical type books but this one is such a fabulous read for EVERYONE who rides a horse, not just dressage riders. It explains the mechanics of a horses spinal and muscular system and the correct way a horse should move in order to stay sound and happy. There is also a brilliant companion DVD which I've watched over and over again. It's a little expensive but well worth. Jody xxx
