Amateur Horseman's Theory & Practical Textbook
By Margaret Clarke

This book is for those who want to ride skillfully, with style and precision. The author points out how the conformation of a horse - whether good or bad - will affect his performance, and explains how to choose a suitable mount.

In a unique approach to the promotion of understanding and coordination between horse and rider, a chapter is devoted to the position of the horse under the rider and a second to the importance of the rider's position on the horse.

A comprehensive section on riding aids - the art of communicating with the horse - explains in practical detail exactly how to teach your horse all the movements required for a complete education. Riding is not an exact science, though, and the most important lesson for the rider is to realise that it is what the horse understands, through the riding aids, that is the ultimate criterion for a successful partnership.
