Title: Fundamentals of Riding: Learning the Essential Skills.
Description: Swan Hill, Shrewsbury, 1998, first edition.. 160 pp, large 8vo (9 11/16" H), soft cover with self-flaps. ISBN 1853108529 "This book is written for the amateur one-horse owner to assist in mastering the basic skills which should lead to effective and enjoyable riding for both members of the p artnership. The improved level of performance may allow the pair to compete creditably in a variety of events at, or perhaps beyond, a good local level. The book provides the indispensable guidelines; it fills the inevitable gaps and helps t o c l a r ify and fix the details of technique. Very importantly, it enlarges on the theory that underpins the rational movements and practice of correct and successful riding and so contributes to a wider, deeper understanding of the whole. Th e bo o k is c op iously illustrated in colour and the horses have been selected to demonstrate the schooling movements and exercises that are typical of those that would be within reach of the amateur rider who aspires to take part in club-level co mp eti ti on at a goo d medium standard." Interior - tiny edge tear with crease (archivally taped) on first page, otherwise clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - light rubbing. Very Good.
