More About the Author
Alexander Nevzorov's contribution to the development of horsemanship is really priceless. He managed to do a seemingly impossible thing; he understood the mechanism of the natural horse's collection. He has learnt to collect a horse without any artificial aids, without bridles and bits. Nevzorov's horses at liberty, at lunge, in hands and while mounted always move in a perfect balanced collection without a bridle. It is necessary to point out that during the process of training Nevzorov never and in no case uses bridles, mediakanas, cavesons and halters, only cordeo - a thin strap that lies free on a horse's neck.
He educated his horse to read, write and so communicate which was demonstrated in LEP film.
Certainly all this did not happen at one stroke. Alexander had to go a long and difficult way to understand finally the essence of horse and man relationship. It took years of studying and self-perfection to acknowledge the truth. Alexander had to admit his own faults, repent and to start everything from the beginning. By this time the understanding between horses and him has been developed to a phenomenal extent.
However I am sure that he will not stop at this stage and will go further. What he will achieve at the end... Let's not guess and just wait for new films and books. But anyway the one thing is clear: this way leads to understanding of human and horse's souls.
