Description

The Art of Dressage. Basic Principles of Riding & Judging by Alois Podhajsky. Translated by Eva Podhajsky with 28 photographs of the medalists at the Olympic Games dressage tests 1912 to 1972 by Werner Menzendorf and others. 'The fine art of dressage, which is essentially means the training of horses and rider to achieve the utmost in natural grace and harmony of movement, is here discussed from the point of view of proper performance and fair judging. To illuminate the discussion, Colonel Podhajsky reviews the dressage records of the Olympics from the introduction of equestrian events to the present, and gives his own on-the-spot observations of the individual performances - with scored results - at the 1972 Olympics. Constructively, he also gives detailed advice for each step of training in order to achieve the desire straightness, impulsion, lightness, precision, and brilliance'. The dust jacket has light general wear and the inside front free end page has been neatly removed but the book remains tight and bright.
