DESCRIPTION:
Once the domain of the equestrian elite, dressage (originating from the French word for "training") is now the most popular equestrian discipline in the United States. Fuelled in part by its visibility as an Olympic event, dressage participation levels have reached an all-time high. This centuries-old practice of classical horsemanship, using time-tested and humane methods, is a slow process that requires patience and discipline, but is beneficial to every horse, regardless of breed. The goal of achieving seamless communication and dance-like precision with the horse appeals to riders of all levels, disciplines, and ages. In this book, the United States Dressage Federation (USDF), whose membership has doubled in the past 20 years, demystifies basic dressage techniques for riders of all disciplines. Assuming no prior knowledge of the sport, "The USDF Guide to Dressage" leads riders through a full course of exercises, from simple to more complex, with easy-to-follow photographic sequences, all presented in full-colour and demonstrated by outstanding dressage instructors. This authoritative guide also includes the dramatic and colourful history of dressage, an overview of proper terminology and equipment, as well as information on competition, cross-training for other disciplines, management of the dressage horse, cross-training for achieving rider fitness, and more.
