Hard cover is glazed boards, white spine with black and red lettering. Translated from the original German by Coralie Hughes. Lavishly illustrated with dozens of color and b/w photographs and diagrams, this is another exceptional book from the noted Dr. Heuschmann. "Books can't change the world byt they can demonstrate where abuse is happening and inspire new ways of thinking. A veterinarian, Dr. Heuschmann first completed professional horsemanship training ('Pferdewirt) , then received the Stensbeck medal. For many years has devoted himself to horse friendly training methods ...as the leading opponent of forceful methods, he crusaded against 'Rollkur'...has made a name for himself as an expert in the field of biomechanics. ..." I would like to advise every horseman never to judge different philosophies before having tried them because we can learn a lot from each other. On the other hand: Never accept training methods, which are based on constraint and subordination of the horse by force! Some of the chapters are: Horse Sport; Riding; Horse and Sport; Training; the Seat; Influenece; Collection; the Poll; Rein Lameness; Fundamentals; summary; Science; riding cultures; Basicd rules of Conduct in Horse Sport; Imdex. Oversized, 4#. Sport Horses of the world [and the owners and trainers that love them] are grateful for Dr. Heuschmann's advocacy for correct, humane and fair treatment of our wonderful partners. ; B & W and Color; 0.9 x 10.3 x 8.3 Inches; xvii. 238 pages
