TheHorseStudio.com copyrighted review:- In this book Douglas addresses his idea of the seven deadly sins of dressage. These are ignorance timidity, pride, fear, impatience, anger and immoderation. This is an extremely well written book with lots of personal anecdotes and quotations from the great equestrian masters throughout history. The message is clear. We can all do better. The text flows easily into the mind and the writing I think is exceptionally engaging. After reading this book you will feel inspired to do better, and will be aware of bad energies and habits that may have crept into your riding spirit. A truly good book. Highly recommend this, not just for dressage folks either. It applies in great part to all riders. Seriously. Well done Douglas Puterbaugh and Lance Wills and as always, Trafalgar Square Books has done a wonderful publishing and editing job.

Britta brings the wealth of her Grand Prix horse making experience to the reader and clearly explains how taking the identical approach to horses of different types and conformations is a recipe for disaster, or at least, lost potential. ......(click on image for full details)1991447
