He also reveals the truth of how horses are often thrown out of natural balance and harmony by much of today's dressage show training. With plenty of photographs, diagrams, and patterns and indicated weight distributions and charts, he completely unravels the falicy of today's dressage which has substituted a form of showmanship dressage which is forced, flat, and very hard, often breaking down the horse. Photos of competition pros and the incorrect positions of their horses reveals the truth.
Phillipe Karl offers resolutions to these problems with a proper interpretation from the great masters who wrote the books on dressage. He offers solutions to each of the problems presented and a variety of ways to approach the resolutions in a natural non-invasive way for the horse!
The book is very informative, mapped out well and intelligently written with plenty of proof and research and experiments that were done to prove all of his claims. I also found it to be proven by his set of FOUR dynamic training videos which shows the same horses in the book being worked and schooled in the videos - proof that lightness, true suppleness and ease is achieved through gentle training. I have his ground training long lining book, all his videos, and this wonderful book and it has been well worth it! Learning these techniques has been phenomenal and I have added it to my library of equine training. As a professional natural horse trainer and dressage trainer, I can fully endorse the proven techniques and material in this book! What a great training and reference source!
A famous saying, "A horse should not be for dressage, but dressage should be for every horse." This book makes this saying a reality.
