The art of successful riding is the development of harmony to such a degree, that, to the onlooker, horse and rider perform in total unity. The rider's key to this ideal is not a static seat, but one that is capable of adapting to all movements of the horse. The closer the seat follows the movement, the better it can influence that movement and remain in perfect balance with the horse. With the perception of a physical therapist Susanne von Dietze analyzes the seat and its influence, and discovers the sources of numerous mistakes and weaknesses in this area; and with the perception of an experienced trainer she gives explanations for a greater understanding and suggests many useful exercises. First published in 1993,Balance in Movement, has long since become a classic in equestrian sports literature. It is an indispensable source of advice for all who would like to have a better understanding and command of the rider's seat, teachers and students alike.

The two main goals of this Study Guide is to help owners, trainers, and students identify gaiting problems and help develop solutions for long-term sound health of the horse. This User Manual follows the nature of the horse's movements at liberty and strives for the same movements with the presence of a rider mounted on his back. The gaited horse does not require any special training. When at liberty, a gaited horse's natural way of moving without a rider is poetry in motion. Gaited horses can move with as much grace and skill as can be seen in any breed of horses. Just watch a stallion, led to a mare; He can piaffe and passage beautifully. (a piaffe is where the horse trots in place, whereas a passage is a high, graceful trot that appears to be in slow motion); he can execute highly complex movements without a rider on his back. Adding a mounted rider, however, interferes with the horse's natural way of moving. It's up to us to restore his natural way of moving when mounted.
