Further Title Description: For centuries horses have been trained in-hand within the classical schools of riding, yet today work in-hand is often forgotten. German trainer Richar Hinrichs, presents his training programme showing how schooling from the ground builds trust, obedience, and balance in the horse. He clearly demonstrates that in-hand work is an excellent way of supporting and complementing work under saddle and can be especially helpful for riders striving to achieve the higher-level movements for dressage competition. Richard Hinrichs demonstrates how the use of reins, whip, voice and body language can encourage voluntary co-operation from the horse and allow him to develop his balance and confidence without the added complications of a rider's weight. The book is filled with clear explanations and numerous colour photos of the necessary equipment and techniques including for schooling in-hand; aids and their application; work on the lunge; the Spanish walk; pesade and capriole.
