List of Recommended Reading?

  • I was wondering if anyone would be up for compiling a little list of books they would recommend people read.  Here is some that I can think of.

    Enlightened Equitation
    Tug of war classical v Modern Dressage
    Centered Riding (I found some of the visualisation exercises useful)
    Schooling horses in- hand
    Perfect Partners - Kelly Marks

    May add some others later.  Anyone else have any recommendations.  :)

  • Here is one a friend gave me to read:

    "Misconceptions and Simple Truths in Dressage" - Dr H L M van Schlaik
    A thought-provoking enquiry into the current state of international dressage.

    Another one received as a Christmas present from my daughter:

    "Henriquet on Dressage" - Michel Henriquet / Catherine Durand
    This is a book that will satisfy and inform all who seek guidance on working in the true classical tradition.

    Happy reading.

    More to follow  :wave:
