Dressage Training Books
Though I am working with my instructor who rode & trained dressage, I also am interested in reading training guides/books about dressage. I was hoping some of the talented members of the dressage section would help me out by suggesting a few. Hopefully I can find them at my library, if not, they will be on my Christmas list. :) I can recall some threads where others have mentioned books, but I can't actually find the threads or remember the titles of the books, so I thought I would make a new thread. Maybe this thread will help others as well.

Thanks to all who reply, I'm grateful.

OH! i just found my all time favourites!!!
Horses are made to be horses- (i cant find it, but it popped into my mind, im sure if you look it up on google it will be there! it has a blue cover)
Classical schooling with the horse in mind-Anja Beran
These two books are my favourites! :)

Found horses are made to be horses in my library catalog & requested it, the rest are all duds. :P Well, I guess I'll start my rough draft Christmas list. :)

ridergirl23 07-19-2010 05:33 PM

yes, its a good one, the guy who wrote it died, and his wife and friends put it together for him. the introduction (or is the the chapter one, anyways, the place where they talk about him dying and stuff) made me cry a lot, lol. its really good, though, and he explains everything so that ANYONE could understand it! :)

horseluver2435 07-19-2010 05:39 PM

That does sound like a good one. :) Hopefully it'll come in soon- our county's libraries share books that you request online, but predicting when they'll make it to your library is near impossible. Some will come in the next day, others will be two weeks. :/ But at least I'll get it.
