With sensible schooling almost every horse can be made more supple, more responsive, and easier to ride - and therefore capable of performing far better than ever imagined possible.

Using classical techniques and first- hand experience, Michael Stevens offers sound advice on: equipment • schooling objectives • improving riding ability • achieving a good starting contact • riding simple and direct transitions • starting lateral work • riding school patterns and exercises. There is also a large section dealing with common training problems and how to overcome them.

Practical Schooling will be equally useful for those who work alone, and as a backup to complement lessons with an instructor. It will be a source of encouragement and inspiration for those unsure of what best to do when schooling, and serve as convincing proof that schooling need never be boring for any horse or rider.

MICHAEL J. STEVENS is also the author of the highly respected
A Classical Riding Notebook.
