Kyra Kyrklund has designed this training series to be relevant to the dressage rider as well as those involved in showjumping and eventing.This first volume in the six part series concentrates on Kyra's personal philosophy on communication between man and horse and how the art of dressage and the use of the horse has developed over the centuries. She demonstrates how the rider can harness the natural reactions of the horse in a positive way by using a simple and logical signal system plus judicious use of reward and correction.
She emphasises the importance of mutual harmony and communication and what to do if communication breaks down. Kyra says: "Communication is feeling put into a technique - and that communication is horsemanship"
