Required Reading for the USDF Instructors Certification Program
Originally published in German and previously published in English as the Anatomy of Riding, this new translation of the classic work provides riders with the anatomical basis for correct riding. Working from this anatomical perspective, the authors, who in addition to being father and son are both medical doctors, discuss the individual requirements of riding theory.
As they analyse the human anatomy they also treat with the difference between male and female anatomy, thus putting the finger on a problem that seems to be universal with women riders.
Many of their conclusions may seem surprising to some readers, such as the notion that it is physically impossible to “brace the lower back” as we are so often advised by instructors.
A fascinating work, not to be missed by serious riders. Required Reading for the United States Dressage Federation’s Instructor Certification Program.
