Book review

This volume brings together Jean Froissard's two definitive books on dressage and classical horsemanship. Part one, "A Guide to Basic Dressage" is an essential text for all riders who aspire to train correctly and compete successfully. The stages of classical school based on General L'Hotte's concise maxim "calm, forward, straight" are given in a simple and logical progression. Starting with the selection of a suitable dressage horse, Froissard leads the reader patiently through each movement and transition, with emphasis on the rider's influence, and aids being properly applied at the correct moment. Part two, "Classical Horsemanship for Our Time" presents the heritage of classical theories of riding in a modern, highly readable format, taking the reader through the development of a dressage horse - that is, dressage in its truest sense: the training of a riding horse. Froissard begins with criteria for selecting a horse and early training that should be basic for any horse, whatever its equestrian discipline. With constant emphasis on rewards for even the slightest improvement, Froissard then takes the reader through the training progression up to the highest dressage levels. The emphasis throughout is always on the practical rather than the heavily theoretical. While particularly addressing the dressage rider, "Classical Horsemanship for Our Time" is a supreme aid for all riders and competitors who desire a deeper and more complete understanding of the classical way of riding.
