Training Advice for Dressage, Showjumping and Event Horses from Champion Riders, Equine Scientists and Vets

An easy to digest guide to conditioning, injury prevention and management of sport horses, that has not been previously available. While most books on riding and equine training focuses on developing technical skills in horses and riders, this book concentrates on training physiology, conditioning and management, including strategies to prevent equine injury. It presents advice from some of the world’s renowned top riders and equine vets on keeping the competition horse sound and motivated, supported by findings from scientific equine and sports research, and examples from the careers of top horses and riders. The aim is to pass on well substantiated advice on how as a rider one can help the horse to perform, and how to develop the horse’s physical strength and fitness.
