For the Good of the Rider

by

Mary Wanless


Wanless' methods, renowned for boldly cutting through the conflicting advice so often given to riders, make skillful riding a possibility for all.
Mary Wanless has spent nearly 20 years developing teaching strategies to enhance riding performance and to eliminate the difficulties that beset so many riders today. Her methods, renowned for boldly cutting through the conflicting advice so often given to riders, make skillful riding a possibility for all. She explains that behind the art of riding lies a science with laws of cause and effect. Observing these laws transforms the rider's body into a sophisticated tool for influencing the horse, allowing riders to simulate the techniques that gifted riders use naturally. Chapters on learning, sports psychology, dismounted exercises, and bodywork expand the ideas of her earlier books: The Natural Rider, Ride with Your Mind, and For the Good of the Horse.
