Straightening the Crooked Horse: Correct Imbalance, Relieve Strain, and Encourage Free Movement with an Innovative System of Straightness Trainingby Gabriele Rachen-schoneich
Synopses & Reviews
Teaching both ground and in-saddle schooling techniques, this guide outlines a revolutionary holistic system for straightening horses' bodies. Poor performance, bad behavior, and a decline in physical well-being all result from ingrained crookedness, which accounts for 95 percent of all movement problems in both pleasure and sport horses. Exploring a variety of issues—including where crookedness comes from; the basic anatomy and physiology of the moving horse; how incorrect training affects the health, strength, and temperament of the horse—this guide's complete training program will help riders and their horses achieve true straightness.
