In the spring and summer of 2007, four horses were born. In internationally renowned author Paul Belasik’s new book, the reader follows these four horses—all siblings that grew up together—from their birth through their breakingin and first year of training, a span of almost four years. Along the way Belasik explores the breaking and training system he has used for almost 40 years, on hundreds of horses. This training system evolved to prepare the classical dressage horse but it has been adapted to become a universally elementary education for a sport horse of almost any riding discipline. In addition he shares an intimate glimpse of the life of a horseman—a breeder, trainer, teacher, and writer.
