Sally Swift's "Centered Riding" is a classic equestrian text and has sold over 150,000 copies worldwide. Its publication 21 years ago caused a revolution in riding by demonstrating how good use of the body can make a world of difference to both rider and horse. The author is widely known for her innovative teaching philosophy stressing body awareness, the value of 'soft eyes', proper breathing, centring and balance, and her methods enable horse and rider to achieve harmony, working together naturally and without pain. Through the use of vivid, unusual and highly creative images, and a thorough knowledge of human and equine anatomy, Sally Swift enables the conscientious equestrian to reassess habitual responses in order to ride in natural positions, and achieve ever-rising goals with comfort, vitality and precision.
