Full of colour photographs and montaged sequences taken through this year's eventing season, Schooling for Success with provide a clear and practical guide for anyone planning to tackle a one-day event with their horse. This book follows William's career from the early days of riding ponies with his brother and sister, the unknown horses that got him noticed through to his current string of top rides. William offers excellent and unique advice on how anyone keen on eventing can work with their horse to develop results on the big day. He starts with flatwork - by improving the basics at home, you can earn a few extra points in the dressage phase - often the more difficult discipline for event horses. Next showjumping - William explains how he works his own horses to ensure they are careful over light showjumps. Finally cross country - William offers his advice, hints and tips on how to tackle the many different jumps or combinations a one-day eventer might encounter. Throughout this book stunning montaged sequences of William jumping have been included to give the reader a real view of how he approaches, jumps, lands and gets away from a variety of fences. You can clearly see how the horses tackle each fence and how William's position differs depending on the type of obstacle.
