International Dressage Success Betsy Steiner tailors Pilates and psychological exercises to the horse rider. Thehorsestudio.com copyrighted review. This is one of the best books I've read on how to work productively with your horse and combine all aspects of self in the process of horse riding. Nothing airy or lightweight about this advice.
International competitor Betsy Steiner brings tailored Pilates exercises for the rider together with help on how to involve yourself intellectually and addresses such issues as commitment, consistency and enthusiasm, patience and much more. The combination of mind, body and spirit techniques for both the rider and the horse based on the pyramid training of classical dressage is given in the book in a great building block program. For example, the work on straightness Betsy defines the intellectual element as positioning, the athletic element as alignment and the psychological element as commitment.
Through the clever and well thought out elements of her program you are able to address each stage of training for both yourself and your horse with concrete methods and clear understanding. Introduction in this book from Klaus Balkenhol and the production is extremely high quality with super photography too. Whether you want to address your horse's psyche or improve yourself significantly as an athlete, Betsy has addressed all the issues in a superb way. Loved it.
