NEW book; still in the publisher's shrinkwrap. Soft cover, maroon ground with grey lettering; grey spine with maroon lettering. Back flap folds out to show figure 4, in color. Pages are clean and tight. Multiple copies available. Illustrated with 24 b/w photographs and drawings from the 1939 edition; additionally there are 23 color photographs added to the 2003 edition. "The photographs have been retained in their authentic form in order to maintain the integrity of the original book because the prints relate technically very closely to the text and should only serve to better illustrate the training of the horse to the rider". Translated by Teresa Hoffmann. "In this book, first published in 1939, the authors....set out clearly and precisely the requirements for the successful training and long and healthy life of the riding horse. The authors explain the physiological facts which are the foundation of the teaching of riding and discuss important factors in the training of the horse and how to recognize and rectify training problems. Olympic champion and former German and US national trainer, Klaus Balkenhol and Dr. Gerd Heuschmann...as well as other prominent figures in the equestrian world, set out why this book is just as important to today's riders and horsemen as when it was written. According to Klaus Balkenhol, average horses can be made into top horses through correct training and an understanding of the links between muscular function and the construction of the skeleton working in combination during the different phases of trining. From the point of view of the veterinary practitioner, correct and well-thought-through riding remains the best way to prevent all injuries to the horse. Dr. Gerd Heuschmann considers this book to be compulsory reading for all competition and amateur riders of every equestrian discipline who feel responsible for their horses, and for trainers, judges and veterinary practitioners".
