Jane Myers MSc (Equine), AKA The Horse Rider's Mechanic, has been riding, teaching and working with horses almost all of her life. This book is the result of many years of teaching and riding experience. Improving your balance is the key to further improving your riding. It is of key importance because without addressing the fundamental issues you cannot obtain an 'independent seat'. This book contains several lessons for each of the three paces, walk, trot and canter. It builds on Horse Rider's Mechanic Workbook 1: Your Position, teaching you how to implement your now improved position and become a safer and more secure rider. The lessons allow you to improve at your own pace, in your own time. They will compliment any instruction you are currently receiving because they concentrate on issues that are generally not covered by most instructors. This book also provides instructors, riding coaches and trainers with lots of valuable tips for teaching clients. You cannot afford to miss out on this great opportunity to learn!

200 School Exercises with Poles

200  School Exercises with Poles

This book discusses ground-pole training for all disciplines and shows how you can make the most of precious schooling time.

Author: Claire Lilley

This book discusses ground-pole training for all disciplines and shows how you can make the most of precious schooling time. It provides quick and easy pole layouts, using just a handful of poles. Different exercises are given for each pole layout, so there is no need to move the poles during a session. Exercises range from the simple to the more intricate, with the inclusion of more transitions, lateral work, raised poles/cavalletti, or riding in a different gait. Claire Lilley explains how these pole exercises can help you to ride with precision and improve your horse's way of going, adhering to the scales of training. You can also use the different layouts to check whether you are sitting straight, turning correctly, and riding transitions and lateral movements properly. She lists common rider faults for each exercise to help riders self-correct if schooling alone. As an experienced trainer herself, Claire knows that this book will prove an invaluable resource for riding instructors, providing a veritable cookbook of ideas for lesson plans. Poles are a great teaching tool, adding variety to every lesson and helping the teacher to explain lessons to the pupil. Teacher's tips are given for each exercise. Claire says: "Try the exercises for yourself and I'm sure you will be amazed at the improvements that can be made both in your riding technique and in your horse's way of going. You will never be bored with schooling again!"

For equestrians, horse trainers, and animal lovers, Basic Training for a Safe Trail Horse is a comprehensive, in-depth look at logical and humane training tips for optimal trail riding. Martha Leynes-Selbert, published writer and horse training specialist, has written a superb user's guide that gives trainers, riders and owners a distinctive way to establish a quiet and successful relationship with a horse. Leynes-Selbert's approach to a gentle way of training is explained in detail along with photographs that give the reader step-by-step instruction. Through her relationship with horse trainer, Patricia Allard, Leynes-Selbert's proven methods include relating to the horse as an "alpha mare" instead of a predator. She takes all aspects of fear-based training out of the equation and highlights the intelligence of this regal animal. Her methods include a more compassionate approach-how horses can actually respond to the rider or trainer through words and patient attention.
