From the Publisher
Centered Riding is not a style of riding as are hunter seat and Western. Rather, it is a way of re–educating 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. Why a second book? Centered Riding has continued to evolve, and Swift has developed many new concepts, complete with fresh imagery, which make her approach both rider–friendly and fun. Chapters include The Following Seat; The Horse is Your Mirror; Discover Shared Energy; Hands That Help, Not Hinder; and Centered Jumping. Sally Swift lives in Brattleboro, Vermont. Her ground–breaking work, Centered Riding, translated into nine languages, has sold more than 400,000 copies worldwide.See all Product Description

You MUST know your learning style before buying Sally Swift - if 'grow like a tree' doesn't help you with your riding, avoid her like the plague. If on the other hand you have the type of brain that responds well to these sorts of descriptions, dancers\actors etc who can understand what their bodies need to do in response to imagery - then buy her books and avoid the others who use more mechanistic descriptions.
