The Rider’s Balance: Understanding the Weight Aids in Pictures

The Rider’s Balance: Understanding the Weight Aids in Pictures

ISBN: 9781910016343

Author: Sylvia Loch

Publisher: Kenilworth Press

Format: Hardcover

Price: AUD $34.95
RRP: AUD $45.00

This book is designed for all riders from the very novice to the most advanced. Sylvia Loch teaches through illustrations and photos how each tiny shift of the rider s weight will affect the horse s balance.

The weight aids are generally taught only to higher level students especially those learning the more advanced skills. Yet, by including them from the beginning, novice riders will develop a much greater understanding of their own bodies and abilities and those of the horse from day one.

In the Authors words...

The time has surely come to show all riders how their body-weight impacts on the horse for good or bad. Feel and balance should govern the whole ethos of equitation. In this book, I show through pictures how the giving of the aids can transform the horse in each and every movement so that our communication with this wonderful animal takes us to new levels of understanding and empathy.
