Dressage Tips and Training Solutions Using the German Training System.
by Petra Holzel, Wolfgang Holzel, Martin Plewa.

Three top German trainers join forces & provide a problem-solving training manual for dressage riders from novice to Grand Prix level.

The German training principles, including the establishment of losgelassenheit (looseness), durchlassigkeit (submission & responsiveness) & schwung (impulsion & swing), are emphasized throughout, giving some insight into why & how Germany produces so many world-beating horses.

The book covers the main elements of the horse's education - from early schooling on the lunge through to Grand Prix movements - stressing, throughout, the need for sympathetic management of the horse both during work & when at liberty.
It includes a chapter on jumping, with gymnastic grid exercises to supple the dressage horse. It also discusses rider psychology and how to acquire the right attitude to training & competing. Training techniques are presented in an accessible "problems & tips" format, identifying training difficulties & offering solutions.

The work may be used as a quick reference, to be dipped into at leisure or as the need arises.
