Dressage Solutions covers those important early years where there should be both trust and respect between the horse and rider - without which no good riding can result. Lungeing, backing and the rider's seat are discussed in depth with particular emphasis given to early training and lateral work. A problems and answers section at the end of each chapter looks at solutions for both horse and rider. Illustrated throughout with photographs and diagrams to show correct examples and faults, Dressage Solutions is an invaluable dressage guide for both amateur and competent rider.
