Opened my mind! Dec 31 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This was my first experience with Dominique Barbier and the French approach to dressage. His presentation of the French theory of lightness and harmony opened my mind. It changed my rigid approach and my horses have been very grateful. From this book I learned that lightness can be achieved without force. His instructions for work in-hand were clear and easy to duplicate on my own. Diagrams and explanations were clear and technical enough without being complicated. I felt this book was easy to read and understand, was presented in a progressive format and just oozed with a sensitivity and a passion for the horse that is not found in similar books. This book is a must read for any serious dressage rider, instructor or trainer.

A very under-rated dressage book Jan. 22 2014
By Jojo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A very nice but somewhat under-rated dressage book. It is especially nice to see all the photographs of all the different kinds of horses, learning dressage. A nice book, and it certainly deserves more attention.
