Describing the basic anatomy and physiology of the horse, this book by an experienced veterinarian identifies widely-used incorrect training methods?especially in dressage?that can undermine a horse's health and well-being. Starting with the question Who is responsible for this? the book looks at breeders, breed associations, instructors, judges, riders, spectators, and the governing bodies of horse sports. The hyperflexion issue, the discussion shows, is that training affects horses both for good and for ill, and riders should reject any methods that cause pain or fail to respect the mental habits and physiological needs of their animals.

Dr. Gerd Heuschmann is a veterinarian with a research interest in the training of horses in equestrian sports.

    Super explanation of "WHY" and "HOW"...not just an opinion.

  • Tug of War - Classical vs. Modern Dressage

    This is a very good book if you are concerned about the 'proper' or best way to train a horse for the horse. It has excellent pictures depicting the difference in movements based on "artificially induced" or "modern" training methods and the classical, European methods where the horse performs naturally and without tension. Does not go into as much detail as I would like as far as "HOW TO" but does a good job of explaining anatomical effect and visually depicting the difference between the right and wrong RESULTS. Need to combine this book with a good classical dressage instructor and it will become much more meaningful.
