This book covers broadly the psychology and physiology of the horse at a level required by all serious horsemen and women. Without this elementary knowledge a thorough understanding of the horse and his needs cannot be achieved. The Horse Rider's Handbook takes the reader through the training of the horse from his earliest handling as a foal, through his basic training and on to jumping and dressage. The handbook goes on to explain the requirements of competition dressage, show jumping and cross country riding, together with some guidance on how these equestrian disciplines may be approached in order to stand a fair chance of success. Any rider who takes their discipline seriously will benefit from the advice given in this excellent handbook.
