Based on decades of practical experience, as well as classic horsemanship theory, this book will teach anyone (from novices to experienced riders) the essentials of a horse's structure, natural balance and way of moving. Horses may be born to move but not all move equally well, and how a horse moves has an impact on how you ride. Susan Harris, with over 300 colour drawings, illustrates exactly how horses move, and common movement problems, how a rider in the saddle can affect movement and can help anyone to become a more accomplished rider (and helps the horse's health). All horses-whether a dressage horse or a hunter-have the same anatomy, locomotion and nature. Understanding horse movement makes training, and riding, simpler and less frustrating for both horse and rider, as well as helping the health of the horse. Horse Gaits is an exhaustive guide to: Find out how balance and conformation affect movement. View flexion, bending and lateral movements. See the impact of shoeing and riding on movement. Discover practical tips to improve your horse's movement. Illustrated with 300 colour drawings that show exactly how horses move, illustrating movements common to all horses and pinpointing movement problems. Everything a rider needs to become better and more accomplished. Focuses on what is common and natural to all breeds of horses. Horse Gaits appeals to everyone involved with horses from riders, trainers and, even, competition judges.

Centered Riding is not a style of riding as are dressage, hunter seat, or Western. Rather, it is a way of reeducating a rider’s mind and body to achieve greater balance in order to better communicate with the horse. Founder Sally Swift revolutionized riding by showing that good use of the human body makes a world of difference on horseback. Early in her work, she established what she calls the “Four Basics” — centering, breathing, soft eyes, and building blocks—which, together with grounding, are the main tenets of her method. When a rider learns and maintains these basics, then harmony between horse and human is possible. Sally Swift’s first book, Centered Riding, made its revolutionary appearance in 1985 and continues as one of the best-selling horse books of all time. This second book doesn't replace the first one, it complements it. In the intervening years, Centered Riding continued to evolve, and Sally inevitably developed many new concepts and fresh imagery, all of which are presented here.
