About the Author
Karin Blignault was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa, where she still lives. Always passionately interested in animals, she started riding in her early twenties and studied under a number of eminent trainers, her studies bringing competitive success in showjumping, horse trials, and dressage. She remains active at a high level in dressage, and teaches riding.
Having studied occupational therapy, Karin took a diploma in the education of children with learning difficulties and began to study neuro-developmental therapy. Parallels between her studies and key concepts of classical equitation led to the writing of her first book, Successful Schooling: Train Your Horse with Empathy. Now, further combining her skills with the latest research, she has produced Stretch Exercises for Your Horse, a book which shows how techniques long considered invaluable to human athletes can be applied with great benefit to that equine gymnast—the modern sport horse.
Top customer reviews
I did several relevant stretch exercises on my horse's sore back end, and within a week he was helping to stretch himself and really seemed to enjoy it, closing his eyes, relaxing and wiggling his lips. His lunging work has also become easier as he has become more supple.
I especially recommend this book for anyone doing competition work with their horses, as they can become quite tense in certain areas and this book helps to explain and show you how to release the tension. Highly recommended.
