The Way to Perfect Horsemanship
by Udo Burger
Widely regarded as one of the best books on equitation, this book gave for the first time a clear insight into the psychological make up of the horse, its muscular system, and the mechanics of movement. It gives the reader a thorough understanding of the basic principles of training, fundamentals of riding and the effective use of the aides. A must have book whether you are a trainer, teacher, competitor, judge or pleasure rider.
