Author Notes: Erik Herbermann's initial equestrian training was with Patricia Salt FBHS, herself a pupil of Richard Watjen and Oberbereiter Lindenbauer at the Spanish Riding School. Subsequently, he studied under the celebrated classical riding teacher, Egon von Neindorff Erik has produced three editions of his perennial best seller Dressage Formula, and narrating an audio version of its third edition, he has also written numerous articles for equestrian publications in the United States, Holland and Canada. Now, after more than twenty years since Dressage Formula first appeared, he has produced this long-awaited new volume, A Horseman's Notes. Erik Herbermann is a staunch advocate of classical ideals, and his ideology is based on an objective study of the horses nature, which seeks the depth of understanding and quality of work perceived in the greatest of Renaissance Masters. In common with these luminaries he views equitation as a self-improving art, rooted in the utmost of affection and respect for the horse.
Further Title Description: In his uniquely philosophical, poetic style, the author presents the inner workings of classical riding, based on notes he meanwhile answering the daily, practical needs of his pupils during many years of teaching. Not only does A Horseman's Notes guide us toward better riding- again and again the readers sensibilities are directed to things of higher value, bringing a spirit of rewarded reverence for the horse, and fresh life into commonplace technique-but also, the concepts go to the core of the matter, enabling us to see more clearly our interaction with the horse as a delightful catalyst, through which we are able to experience our own humanity more fully.
