THE RIDING TEACHER

Add to Basket

Hardback, dustjacket, 204 pages.

First published in 1973 and reprinted many times, The Riding Teacher is an invaluable aid for all instructors and also for riders teaching themselves.

Colonel Podhajsky examines in depth the psychology of riding and the relationship between teacher, pupil and horse.  He gives outlines of classical riding programmes which can be successfully used to improve the abilities of individuals and groups.  He includes chapters on the basic theory of riding, dressage, systematic riding instruction, overcoming difficulties and setbacks and participating in competitions.

Now considered a classic of equestrian literature, The Riding Teacher should be read by everyone seriously interested in classical riding principles of which Colonel Podhajsky was a noted exponent as instructor, performer and Director of the Spanish Riding School in Vienna.  These principles directly help to maintain high standards in contemporary competition.
