"For centuries horses have been trained in hand within the classical schools of riding...Hinrichs, an acknowledged expert on schooling in hand, presents his training program showing how schooling form the ground builds trust, obedience and balance in the horse. He clearly demonstates that in-hand work is an excellent way of supporting and complementing work under saddle and can be especially helpful for riders striving to achieve the higher-level movements for dressage competition". At the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, and the Cadre Noir in Saumur, France, it is traditional to show in hand work during a performance. This is a classical way to start horses in piaffe and passage, as well as the airs above the ground. Excellent book on a frequently neglected aspect of training, and a valued title in my own collection.; Photographs; 6 1/2 x 9 3/4; 160 pages; Cover has very slight bumping.
