Basic Training of the Young Horse

$49.95 $39.95

Over thirty years after the first publication of Reiner Klimke's classic work comes this new fourth edition, with completely new photos and updated by his daughter, Ingrid. Based on sound practical and theoretical advice, this instructional handbook gives advice on establishing a specific training plan for recreational riders as well as competition riders to enable them to train their young horses successfully. Every aspect of the education of a young horse is covered, including:

  • basic education and handling from foalhood;
  • lungeing and free-schooling;
  • backing and training under saddle;
  • developing impulsion from suppleness;
  • assessing and improving basic gaits;
  • cavalletti work;
  • jumping training;
  • cross-country training and, finally,
  • preparing for the first competition.
