The Less Than Perfect Rider: Overcoming Common Riding Problems

The Less Than Perfect Rider: Overcoming Common Riding Problems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Riding is a demanding and at times frustrating sport. Every rider encounters problems and experiences feelings of inadequacy, whether attempting to master a particular dressage movement or summoning up the courage to jump a difficult course. All riders, from novices to top competitors, often permit their physical or emotional shortcomings to overwhelm them. Consequently, in The Less-Than-Perfect Rider Lesley Bayley and Caroline Davis focus on the topics that, in their experience, are of the greatest concern to riders:
  • how to communicate with the horse
  • how to improve mental attitudes
  • body shape and how it affects riding
  • the importance of visualization in correcting faults
Bayley and Davis offer sound riding instruction as well as a program of exercises that will improve a rider's confidence and ability. Once shortcomings—real or imagined—are understood and addressed, riding will become the pleasure it was meant to be.

Synopsis:

Sound riding instructions as well as a program of exercises that will improve a rider's confidence and ability and make riding the pleasure it was meant to be.
