Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Take your understanding of horses and riding to a new level.

In this sequel to How Your Horse Wants You to Ride: Starting Out—Starting Over, Gincy Self Bucklin explores in greater depth the three basics: relationship, riding without interfering, and communication. She then covers the rest of the essential riding skills, including cantering, jumping, and cross country, providing a comprehensive foundation for upper-level work. Bucklin introduces the serious student to advanced concepts, presented in a way that is easy to understand. You'll learn:

  • How to use leading to improve your rein skills and your horse's responses
  • How free-longeing helps you and your horse learn more about his body
  • Why "riding your horse straight" isn't as simple as you thought
  • How to help your horse deal with downhills
  • How to really sit the canter
  • Why jumping is one of the easiest skills

Synopsis:

Techniques to help riders fine-tune their communication and riding skills

This follow-up to How Your Horse Wants You to Ride helps intermediate to advanced riders improve their communication with their mounts and polish their overall riding skills. Readers get a complete tutorial–much of which can be found nowhere else–on taking their riding skills to the next level.
