A critical and revolutionary book about dressage and what it has become today.

Philippe Karl one of the most outspoken critics of the modern dressage world which aims purely at competing a horse as early as possible in well-paid high-level competitions reveals some disturbing facts in this book. The author analyses the physical anatomical and mental condition of a horse with regard to official dressage guidelines issued by the German Equestrian Federation (FN).
