|Horse Gaits, Balance and Movement|
Horses move! It is what makes them useful, able and beautiful! A foal can walk, trot, and gallop within hours of its birth. The horse knows how to be a horse without human help. But when we ride, drive, train and judge horses, we soon discover that not all horses move equally well. Even though there are over two hundred breeds and types of horses, and many different disciplines and styles of riding, the horse's basic mechanism and nature are the same. This book shows these to the reader with exceptional drawings that illuminate the basic structure and anatomy of the horse, the cycle of movement, gaits and transitions between gaits, balance, how a rider affects movement, and more.
