Explore the knowledge and teachings of the old masters in this well
illustrated and easy-to-understand riding book Based on the
knowledge of the old riding masters, such as Xenophon, Pluvinel,
and Steinbrecht, the "Academic Art of Riding" is rooted in the
belief that one must train one's horse not only physically, but
also mentally, according to the motto: "Two spirits who want to do

partner is not only the way to accomplish this, but also the
result. The described gymnastic exercises are made to build up the
horse and keep it healthy. Starting with the horse's basic training

methods for training and physiotherapy for horses in need of
correction, as well the correct seat of the rider, are described.
There is also included a checklist which allows the rider to assess
