Description

With the author’s experience of training and riding at international level, this guide covers the essentials on handling, breaking and training the young event horse. It shows what to look for when buying, discusses training problems, suggests exercises and advises on preparation for competition. The author sets out to answer such questions as: When should you introduce the roller, and then the saddle, prior to backing?; How do you accustom the unwilling pupil to the bit?; At what stage should lungeing start?; How do you avoid over-facing a young horse, and asking too much too soon? She delivers practical advice on all aspects of working with youngsters, from early handling, through backing, lungeing and long-reining, to riding out and early jumping. The book contains specially commissioned photographs taken at the author’s own stud in Hampshire.
