An advanced rider, whether professional horseman, Olympic athlete, or just a horse lover who has learned the fundamentals and go on to ride his or her own horse, in the author’s view, “is someone who graps the idea of good horsemanship and puts a great deal of time and effort into developing his or her seat and position.” Advanced English Riding is designed to helped riders develop those skills and to help them move on to the next level of riding. Author Sharon Biggs, whose credits also include The Original Horse Bible, shares her considerable experience in English riding in this Horse Illustrated Guide that goes beyond the fundamentals to refine the riding skills of hunter/jumper riders and dressage riders, from improving seat and position to advanced schooling techniques and participating successfully and joyfully in competitions. This book offers step-by-step instructions and great advice for all English riders looking to develop, improve, or refine their skills in the various aspects of this popular riding discipline. This extensive guide is divided into 15 chapters and covers the following topics: honing the seat and position, the half halt, riding within the gaits (transitions, stride adjustment, collection, extensions, etc.), riding figures, lateral work, cavalletti and group poles (for hunters, jumpers, and dressage), gridwork (incorporating placing poles and cavalletti), cross-country jumping, hunter courses, show jumping courses, advanced competition in dressage, eventing, hunters, and show jumping, and more

This marvelous book, borne of a unique collaboration between Dr. Allen Schoen—a world-renowned veterinarian and author—and trainer and competitor of many years Susan Gordon, introduces the 25 Principles of Compassionate Equitation. These Principles, conceived by Dr. Schoen and Gordon, are a set of developmental guidelines, encouraging a level of personal awareness that may be enacted not only through the reader's engagement with horses, but can be extended to all humans and sentient beings he or she encounters. The 25 Principles share stories and outline current, peer-reviewed studies that identify and support methods of training, handling, and caring for horses that constitute a safe, healthy, non-stressful, and pain-free environment. Through their Compassionate Equestrian program, the authors encourage all involved in the horse industry to approach training and handling with compassion and a willingness to alleviate suffering. By developing deeper compassion for their own horses, and subsequently, all equines, equestrians transcend their differences in breed preferences, riding disciplines, and training methodologies. This leads to the ability to empathize and connect more closely with the “global collective” of horses and horse people. In doing so, a worldwide community of compassionate equine practitioners and horse owners will emerge, which will not only benefit the horses: People involved with horses are found in many influential segments of society and have the potential to affect wide circles of friends, acquaintances, and co-workers from every walk of life. These are simple changes any horse person can make that can have a vast impact on the horse industry and society as a whole.

At a young age Peggy Cummings noticed that many horses she rode and worked with were sadly inhibited--unable to express their innate curiosity, trust, and freedom of motion--and went about their work in a mechanical, stiff way. This inspired a lifelong search for real-world ways to achieve the "lightness" and "ease" promoted by top instructors and classical texts. Now, in this long-awaited book, Cummings describes the essentials of her specialized groundwork--the first half of her acclaimed Connected Riding program--along with over two dozen highly illustrated exercises to help horses and their handlers find a reciprocal "connection" on the ground before attempting to establish it from the more difficult position in the saddle. These exercises--done both standing still and in motion--drastically change the way you see and feel your horse, and radically improve how your horse moves, responds, and goes about his work.

Horses Whispering emphasizes the unique bond between horses and people, suggesting that every hair on the horse is a biofeedback signal that the horse is responding to connectedness with the rider. For adults interested in beginning horseback riding or returning to riding after a period of time, often due to a traumatic experience with a horse, the author provides detailed examples of the wide range of experiences which are useful to all equestrian activities. “Understanding the power of the horse/rider partnership is a metaphor for the gestalt of teaching and learning.” —Abigail B. Wiebenson, Director Emerita, Lowell School,Washington, DC Indeed, learning to receive the unspoken messages from people and horses is crucial for all successful relationships. Just as human body language is often more important than speech, intuitive awareness of this more subtle information is essential for all aspects of life. This is a call for your success-centered life, whatever your interests. Once you learn the whispered messages between individuals, you will overcome fears about your interactions with other people and animals.
