Real Life Dressage

British Olympian and National Champion Carl Hester shares his training methods and shows how they can be adapted to suit individual dressage horses.

What makes this book so unique is that all the horses featured in this book are dressage horses who have problems. None of them is perfect because in real life the perfect horse doesn't exist. "The aim of the book," Carl explains, "is not to describe ideal training scenarios but to look at what we can do, to the best of our ability, with the horses we have.

Even with difficult dressage horses, as I have proved with Escapado. It is important not to give up until you are absolutely sure that it's not going to work." "If there is a glimmer of hope," says Carl, it is worth persevering. It might take longer to get there, but if you, the rider, have patience, it may well still be possible and this is just as true at the higher levels as it is at the lower ones."

With Carl's approach of using jargon-free text and wonderful color photos to share his methods, this book stands out from other training manuals in usefulness and pleasure in reading.
