Give Your Horse A Chance
Give Your Horse A Chance from Lt Col. A L. D'Endrody
Hard cover. Thanks to the Duke of Beaufort, Hungarian exile D'Endrody, once a member of the Royal Hungarian Olympic Event Team and of their showjumping team, found himself out of the Russian prison and into Badminton. His life and knowledge therein of horses and the classical held approach to teaching and training - all formats - dressage/cross country and showjumping ( in addition to being race jockey for a bit), is generously shared here.

A very interesting and detailed book. There is literally no stone left unturned here - the text covers just about everything you could possibly ask. The exercises with gymnastics for the horse over obstacles are particularly enlightening and the method of best dealing with cantering slopes and jumping ditches very worthwhile for anyone to read who find themselves out in the field foxhunting or training their young event horse or themselves. Some super advice on course design and practice - how to render an obstacle more user friendly, maximum take off distances, how to negotiate banks, combos, and much more. The detail here is really amazing.

The training and fittening regime is also outstanding. The text gives very clear format and details for suggested route and program. There is of course also a wealth of advice on dressage and flatwork in general, preparation for the big event - and all told in a good old fashioned tone that brings a resounding depth and quality to the instruction. So whether you are looking for 'muscle knowledge' or how to create suppleness in your horse's behavior - or how to handle your horse in deviation from his course - it's all right here.

It's a big book - beautifully finished production and weighty in all regards .

Highly Recommended. Classic Read.
