Learning to ride well is a mammoth task—far larger than most riders realize—yet Mary Wanless believes that the essential skills of riding can be mastered by virtually every rider if given the right tools. Over 23 years, Wanless has made it her mission to reveal the secrets of talented riders and to break down the necessary skills into “bite–size chunks.” This book sets out to simplify her methods and to provide a basic tool–kit for using the hands, legs, and body correctly. Best of all, she offers advice on how to make corrections when things don’t go exactly as planned. In each section, the instruction is supported by practical self–tests and exercises to ensure success, and there are ideas for troubleshooting during the learning process and beyond. Mary Wanless is known throughout the world for her Ride With Your Mind method. Her previous titles include The Natural Rider, Ride With Your Mind, For the Good of the Horse,
and For the Good of the Rider,
plus eight videotapes. She teaches regularly in the United States, but makes her home in Oxon, England. An Equestrian Edge Book Club Main Selection
