A Riding Coach’s Key Concepts for Bringing Horse and Rider Together (and Ending in Success!)

“This book is aimed at riders, coaches, and anyone interested in learning more about how humans and horses interact. I have tried to harness my own experiences when I cover the three main disciplines—dressage, show jumping, and eventing—and how they relate to one another. I look at how those in a coaching position can guide riders to perform better by making their lives less complicated and more fulfilling, and I examine how riders can apply the same principles to training their horses and become self-sufficient.” —Eric Smiley


Riding well can be a puzzle. This book puts together the pieces, including:
- How humans and horses learn.
- Striving for partnership vs. dictatorship.
- Early training and developing skills.
- Demystifying equestrian-speak.
- Dressage outside the arena.
- Ground poles for the rest of us.
- Jumping and cross-country tips.
- Solving problems, wherever you ride.
- Competition psychology.
- Being coached and being a coach.
