Falling for Fallacies: Misleading Commonplace Notions of Dressage Riding - HB
InformationA critical analysis of modern dressage doctrines.
What does it really mean to drive the horse 'onto the bit'? Does a stronger application of the rider's aids really encourage the horse to place its hind legs further under it's body? ...Jean-Claude Racinet subjects these and other commonly held assumptions regarding the anatomical and biomechanical aspects of horse riding to a critical analysis, and this context uncovers many wrongly-held beliefs that so far have never been questioned, either individually or as a system.
This book points a spotlight at the many doctrines and half-truths embedded in modern dressage riding. It will set the reader thinking and will make an important contribution to the current debate on the correct approach to dressage training.
