Overview

K. A. von Ziegner has developed an indispensable training tool for dressage, eventing, and jumping. This book was developed to help riders, trainers, and judges understand what it takes to classically train a horse so it can succeed in any discipline. Here, he presents the "Training Tree," a concept that is compelling and easy to understand. It outlines the 10 essential elements of classical basic training and shows how the elements are related and in what order they should be achieved. The author clearly explains how trainers and riders can apply dressage work gently and logically, in order to develop a solid foundation in any horse, mentally as well as physically. This book will assist trainers and riders in teaching a horse to be sound, confident, and well prepared for work and competition at the advanced levels.
