Exploring what it means to be a responsible rider, this book asks whether, in today’s society, it is indeed possible for riders in any horse sport


Product Description

Exploring what it means to be a responsible rider, this book asks whether, in today’s society, it is indeed possible for riders in any horse sport to put the good of the horse first and foremost—most pointedly above ambition and fame. With illustrations of the horse’s anatomy and how it is impacted by various riding techniques, the book presents further proof that, although some steps have been taken to prevent the use of forceful and cruel techniques in the training of top horses, many sport horses still perform in pain and discomfort. Detailed and practical information on horse physiology is provided as are several examples of poor riding so that the reader can avoid similar pitfalls. Based in Gerd Heuschmann’s experience as a veterinarian and his knowledge of the working equine’s body, this exposé shows how bad horse-training methods can be eradicated in favor of more humane ones.
