Editorial Reviews

Review

"In addition to his published works, Dr. Heuschmann hosts educational lectures teaching the anatomy and mechanics of the horse which is useful for riders of all disciplines." Eventing Nation

“Tug of War is one of the most often referenced books by serious horsemen looking to improve equestiran sport… This year Dr. Heuschmann has released his follow-up book, Collection of Contortion?… a critical examination of two concepts—flexation and bend—that are necessary to understand in absolute terms when the goal is to achieve collection on horseback.” —Warmbloods Today 


"Using photographs and superbly rendered anatomical illustrations, Heuschmann explains the differences between correct and incorrect flexion and bend vis-à-vis shoulder-in, travers, half-pass, and other movements." —U.S. Dressage Federation Connection

About the Author

Dr. Gerd Heuschmann trained as a Bereiter (master rider) in Germany before attending veterinary school at Munich University. There he specialized in equine orthopedics for two years before accepting a post as the head of the breeding department at the German FN, which he eventually left to start his own practice in Warendorf. He has been an active member of the hyperflexion (Rollkur) debate, weighing in at numerous symposiums and workshops around the world, as well as writing the bestselling books Tug of War and Balancing Act, and creating the DVD If Horses Could Speak. Along with Klaus Balkenhol and other prominent figures in the dressage community, Dr. Heuschmann is a founding member of Xenophon, an organization dedicated to fighting against serious mistakes in equestrian sport (xenophon-classical-riding.org).
