Principles of Riding

By German National Equestrian Federation

Review by Leanne Williams

The first edition of The Principles of Riding was published more than 50 years ago, and this 28th edition, Basic Training for Horse and Rider, has been completely revised regarding language and content.

The principles explained in this book leads to the education and training of the horse according to its nature and thus to its health, well-being and performance capability. The horse’s instincts and natural behaviour are presented in detail as the basis of communication and understanding between horse and rider. Modern scientific research relating to training theory and biomechanics has influenced the systematic training of the rider as well as that of the horse. The Principles of Riding provides versatile, practical assistance to horse lovers and readers of this book who want to learn, irrespective of whether they ride for leisure or competitively, are interested in hacking or hunting, or want to develop and improve their basic training for dressage, show-jumping or eventing.

These principles should be indispensable for all riders, drivers, trainers and judges, and to all of those who are interested in the appropriate training of the horse, according to the horse’s nature, and who place importance on a harmonious cooperation between horse and rider.
