Description

Originally published in German and previously published in English as the Anatomy of Riding.

Anatomy of Dressage is a new translation of the classic work and provides riders with the anatomical basis for correct riding. Only with a working knowledge of human anatomy can a rider fully understand the instructions given for, correct position in tile saddle and explanations of the movements.

Anatomy of Dressage presents a clear overview of anatomy as related to riding, aimed at the layman. Working from this anatomical perspective, the authors, who in addition to being father and son are both medical doctors, discuss the individual requirements of riding theory.

Many of their conclusions may seem surprising to some readers, such as the notion that it is physically impossible to "brace the lower back" as we are so often advised by instructors.

An absolutely fascinating read, Anatomy of Dressage is required reading for the United States Dressage Federation's Instructor Certification program.
