Synopses & Reviews
Monte Foreman was one of Americaandrsquo;s foremost trainers of horses and riders, and many advances in western training have come from his years of research into the action and interaction of horse and riderandmdash;research aimed at improving their athletic ability as a team. It was Foreman who first applied still and motion-picture photography to the sport of riding, to determine beyond doubt how horses move most naturally and efficiently. His training methods are applicable to all kinds of western and English riding.
Monte Foremanandrsquo;s Horse-Training Science introduces beginning and advanced riders to Foremanandrsquo;s method, which he taught successfully in clinics for many years with Patrick Wyse, his first accredited instructor. Step-by-step instructions and more than 300 photographs and drawings explain how to execute the turn on the forehand, the side pass, leads, the posting trot and the natural depart, flying lead changes, balanced stops, rolls, and spins. The horse-and-rider team that becomes proficient in the Foreman method will enter a whole new world of enjoyment, performance skill, and competitive achievement.
