Description


My approach in teaching and training, as well as in this book, is that of complete sympathy for the horse and devotion to its happiness and well-being....I attempt to educate riders to make their horses happy, confident, and proud to work for them."--Walter Zettl

While teaching lessons and clinics across North America in the late 1990s, Walter Zettl was struck by the hunger for knowledge of classical training principles, which was challenged by both the vastness of the geographic range and the lack of any organized system for delivering correct information. This book was written to meet what he identified then as a need: to serve as both a complete treatise and handy reference. Clear and easy-to-understand chapters take you through each training stage, discuss problems that commonly occur, and provide competent, sensible corrections with the good of the horse in mind.

About the Author


Walter Zettl was trained in Germany under the famous Colonel Herbert Aust, moving to Canada in 1981 where he coached young riders and also served as dressage coach for the Canadian Eventing Team during the Olympic Games in Los Angeles. Zettl has over 65 years of instructional experience and continues to travel and teach the art of dressage.
