From the Publisher
Most riders concentrate endless hours on their horses: warming them up; improving their strength and stamina with gymnastic exercises; cultivating specialized diets to keep them in peak condition; and ensuring that through proper turn–out, time off, and companionship, they remain psychologically content. What is often forgotten is that the horse is half of an athletic partnership. The rider’s own physical and mental fitness affects the end performance of the team, and warming up, conditioning, diet, and psychological stability apply to them as well. This highly illustrated book helps equestrians improve their own bodies and minds on the ground, so they can better perform on a horse. Daniel Stewart received a degree in exercise physiology from the University of Calgary and spent seven years at the renowned Sports Training Institute in New York City working with the institute’s equestrian clients. He is a coach for the United States Endurance Team and Paralympic Dressage Squad.

When I first witnessed a Daniel Stewart Clinic, I was injured both mentally and physically. Watching him work with riders of all abilities helped me see that not all was lost and that perhaps there would be an answer for me someday. Daniel re-arranges the students so rapidly that if you blink the eye, you would swear you were watching a different group of riders. It is the power of positive thinking stretched through the body of the rider and through the horse that completes the picture.
I have found his approach helpful in the long winter months when a rider can easily "lose their seat". Get out his prescribed exercise equipment and go to work and you won't have that lag when the weather turns around again!
Using this book and its principles in a daily program is a win/win proposition for the horse and rider. The information is timeless and offers the difference between a beginning and advanced approach to riding.
