We're delighted to announce that we'll be taking part in the Attingham Trust Study Programme, "The Horse and the Country House," in England in September. We have in stock some of the books on the program's suggested reading list. A selection of them, plus others that may be of interest, are included in "Featured Books" at the bottom of this page. Quantities are very limited. For other titles related to the program's theme, search by the keyword Attingham, or go to "Browse Horses" and then look through the topics Art, Driving (especially other World on Wheels volumes), Farming, Horses in Society & History, and Hunting. We're happy to ship postpaid to Attingham participants within the United States.

Dressage Principles Based on Biomechanics
Ritter, Thomas

Ritter, Thomas. Dressage Principles Based on Biomechanics. Cadmos 2011. 223p, many color photos and color drawings. New hardcover, in d.j. ** A beautiful and important book for intermediate or advanced dressage riders. Dr. Ritter "analyses, compares, and contrasts the knowledge of the old masters [Newcastle, Baucher, Steinbrecht, Watjen, etc.], and describes it as a structured system of equine gymnastics, which is based on equine biomechanics." He explains in detail how to use the three building blocks of equine gymnastics (seat and aids, basic arena patterns, and dressage movements) in schooling and riding your own horse. Includes some long-forgotten "secrets of classical equitation" such as stirrup-stepping and work with the cavesson under saddle. (Item ID: 14901)
