The return of a classic! This landmark work, first published in 1902, is finally back in print. A fundamental text in classical dressage, this information is more relevant than ever with the growth of "riding in lightness."
The legendary James Fillis details his theory and methods on a fascinating array of subjects, including:
-Bits and bitting
-Early training, feeding, and care of the young horse
-Lateral, direct, and indirect flexion
-Horses with vices
-High school riding, including piaffe, passage, shoulder-in, two-tracking, the Spanish walk, and canter in reverse
The light and often humorous style make this a pleasant read, as well as an absorbing look back in time. Illustrated with drawings and photographs, and with a new introduction by William C. Steinkraus, this volume is a must-read for anyone interested in the development of classical dressage in the twentieth century.
