Ride the Body: Lessons in Winning from an Olympic Equestrian

Discover one champion's secrets to show-ring success. Olympic Silver Medalist Peter Leone shares the lessons and habits he has developed over three decades of riding at the highest levels of competition, and he'll help you achieve your personal riding goals, whatever they might be.

Solid riding mechanics and a trusting and respectful friendship between horse and rider are the key elements of Leone's formula for successful showing and jumping. Good form and position give you the confidence, awareness, and presence to connect and communicate with your horse, establishing a "horse to rider, rider to horse" relationship as you "ride the body, not the head." When you and your horse work together, you bring out the best in each other.

In each section of the book, Leone clearly and concisely describes an important riding or jumping principle. He lays out related practice activities and offers checklists for self-evaluation. Descriptions and photographs of top riders bring his principles to life.

Work your way through the secrets to Leone's success, and soon you'll be "riding the ride you know is right."

He coaches riders on the elements of first-rate horsemanship and the foundations of competitive show jumping, sharing his techniques for improving both the physical aspects of riding and the mental strength and focus that are essential to successful competition.
