Format: Hardcover
This book changed my riding - after ten years of riding and showing - I finally am developing the ever-elusive INDEPENDENT SEAT. My horse is delighted, moving freely forward and over her back. Filling up her ribcage and carrying me softly because I am no longer a nasty burden! Sitting the trot, without bobbing, weaving or bouncing is easy now if I align and control my body the way this book describes.
I've promised it to many struggling rider friends, but can't let it out of my hands.
It's very technical - lots of anatomy and physiology interspersed with simple little exercises, some in front of a mirror, that help you understand how your body can work when you're riding. The writing is clear, concised, detailed and practical.
Plan to spend time with this book, reading, re-reading, studying, assimilating. It is truly awesome.

Format: Hardcover
"Balance in Movement" is an excellent book for the thinking horseman who wishes to improve his/her communication skills with their horse. The book details how, physically, we ride and how our body, unconsciously or unconsciously, effects the way our horses react. This is not an easy read, the anatomical terms can get a bit unwieldy, but the excellent photos and line drawings illustrate each point clearly, and make rereading sections valuable. This book can be compared favorably with "An Anatomy of Riding" by H. Schusdziarra, MD and V. Schusdziarra, MD., although "Balance in Movement"does not have a specific Dressage focus. I can recommend this book to anyone who has wondered just exactly how to achieve the perfect balance on a moving horse.

An excellent explanation of why & how to properly "Keep you heels down" "use more seat/leg" . Tells you how to communicate to your body what it needs to do to communicate to the horse in a manner he understands what your request is.
