An advanced rider, whether professional horseman, Olympic athlete,
or just a horse lover who has learned the fundamentals and go on to
ride his or her own horse, in the author's view, "is someone who
graps the idea of good horsemanship and puts a great deal of time
and effort into developing his or her seat and position." Advanced
English Riding is designed to helped riders develop those skills
and to help them move on to the next level of riding. Author Sharon
Biggs, whose credits also include The Original Horse Bible, shares
her considerable experience in English riding in this Horse
Illustrated Guide that goes beyond the fundamentals to refine the
riding skills of hunter/jumper riders and dressage riders, from
improving seat and position to advanced schooling techniques and
participating successfully and joyfully in competitions. This book
offers step-by-step instructions and great advice for all English
riders looking to develop, improve, or refine their skills in the
various aspects of this popular riding discipline. This extensive
guide is divided into 15 chapters and covers the following topics:
honing the seat and position, the half halt, riding within the
gaits (transitions, stride adjustment, collection, extensions,
etc.), riding figures, lateral work, cavalletti and group poles
(for hunters, jumpers, and dressage), gridwork (incorporating
placing poles and cavalletti), cross-country jumping, hunter
