Those who work with and train horses on a regular basis are likely constantly searching for new ways to make inroads and find answers when faced with tough training or behavior problems. Grand Prix dressage rider and performer Yvonne Barteau has trained her share of horses over the years—from off-track racing Thoroughbreds, to Arabians, to Friesians, to Warmbloods—and she asserts that everything that needs to be known about effectively training a horse is already known…by any horse. “Each horse,” says Barteau, “will know and respect the person who figures out how to train him, if that person is fair. The best trainers are not only ‘horse whisperers,’ they are listeners. And readers. They listen to what the horse has to say. They can read horse body language and behavior patterns. They are calm and they stay calm under pressure. How did they learn that? By studying horses. Over time the horses told them how to be a horse trainer and they listened.” Barteau believes that every dressage rider can learn to listen and read, and so experience greater success and partnership with his or her horse. In this book Barteau has used her knowledge and decades of experience and success in and out of the dressage ring to help put to paper what 10 different dressage horses would say to you about horse training if they could. Through the dressage horse’s mouth, from his point of view, readers learn: how simple things really are and how complicated we make them; the value of routine, consequence, and peace; the importance of leadership, fairness, and trust; the need for your sense of responsibility to match your ambition; plus, what kinds of rewards really work and what frightens, annoys, or causes horses to disregard us altogether. If you listen properly, horses will tell you how to train them. This book is a published declaration of their needs as our athletic partners, fellow competitors, and friends.

Do you dream of riding FEI? But are you sick of riding the same dressage tests over and over again, and never getting the scores to advance? And are you overwhelmed by the stress of practicing all year, reading every dressage book, and trying your hardest but not understanding why it is never good enough? Let me show you how to break out of the adult amateur trap and learn the dressage skill set you need to ride with the professionals at FEI. My name is Jenna Smith, and I was stuck at Training Level for six long years, never even qualifying for Regional Dressage Championships. Two years later I had my USDF BRONZE MEDAL and placed in the 2ND, and 3RD Level Dressage CHAMPIONSHIPS for Region 8! At one big dressage show loaded with professionals, instead of last place, I won the High Score Award for ALL the horses at ALL the levels! Can you imagine how that felt? One year after that, in 2007, I won my USDF SILVER MEDAL, and also won 3RD PLACE at Region 8 Dressage CHAMPIONSHIPS for Prix St Georges! Finally at FEI, and actually beginning to school Grand Prix movements! In fact if I hadn't contracted a severe case of Lyme disease (see Dressage Today issue October 2008) only weeks after Championships I would have certainly won my gold medal within the next several years based on my "Secrets" that were working so well for me. Let me show you the dressage secrets to: *go down the center line in total relaxation; *never forget a movement in a test again; *enjoy warm-up at shows; *qualify for championships; *experience harmony with your horse at any dressage show; *earn the USDF medals you dream about; *enjoy riding a musical freestyle; *ride with a top hat in Ring One!

IN 2002 Australia witnessed a witch hunt the size and complexity of which had not been seen since the Lindy Chamberlain case. At its centre stood the horse Cambridge, his owners and a team of veterinarians attempting to save his life. The accusers comprised a protest group, the proprietors of a web site reputed to represent Australia’s equestrian fraternity (8 million hits per month), the Bureau of Animal Welfare and the RSPCA, who claimed to have “never had such a response to one issue in its entire history”. All forms of media weighed in, including newspapers, radio stations, television news and affairs programs. An on-line chat forum publicized thousands of postings with no regard for modulation. It even made parliamentary discussion. Find out the whole story in Francesca Raffaele new book 'One big secret. a thousand little lies.

"The Thomas Herding Technique is thoroughly explained in this book that helps trainers of top equine athletes get them to perform their very best while living happy, contented lives. While following wild horse herds in Wyoming and Montana, independent researcher Kerry Thomas realized that what is inside the horse (emotional conformation) and not what is outside (how a horse is built, or its physical conformation) is what governs herd dynamics. He determined that this was the basis for everything horse: whatever role a horse plays in a human environment-whatever breed, sport, or job-the emotional conformation dictates, in large part, success or failure. Thomas identified a system of emotional profiling-the Thomas Herding Technique-that enables him to determine a horse's performance tendencies, and then began to develop ways in which horses can be mentally conditioned toward a given goal. The technique is already used by some leading racehorse training and breeding programs in the world, and this book explains this unique way of analyzing the psyche of the equine athlete for all horses, and particularly those in competitive careers where performance is a primary focus"--

When Cavalia—the amazing equestrian-themed "spectacular," melding costumes and theatrics with stunt riding and haute école—first took North America by storm, few people knew who Frédéric Pignon and Magali Delgado were. But the whole world was soon abuzz with talk of the magical display these two remarkable individuals provided their audience—whether horse-crazy or layperson, none could walk away unaffected by the powerful connection they demonstrated with their unparalleled cast of beautiful horses. In this remarkable book, now available in paperback, Frédéric—a specialist in liberty and ground work—and Magali—a talented dressage rider at the Grand Prix level—combine efforts and share the secrets of the breathtaking relationships they have cultivated over the course of their lives with horses. They tell the story of Templado—the gorgeous but rebellious stallion who demanded they question all they had learned as horsemen and look at, in a whole new light, what it means to train horses. It was this tempestuous character that taught them that the process of building a relationship with a horse can be on more equal footing than most would dream possible. It is with this life-altering lesson in mind that Frédéric and Magali now explain their Six Golden Principles. These include how you can become a "safe haven"—the most important being in your horse's life—while ensuring he gets the leadership he craves and deserves. And, how to establish acceptable limits of behavior, as well as respect, without ever succumbing to anger or using force. They describe how to read horse behavior so you can better understand and communicate with your equine partner as an "individual." Plus, you'll see what it means to be patient and "give your horse a say" in his own training—and just how rewarding the results can be. In a chapter devoted to their practical approach, you'll explore what is perhaps most central to their methods: the idea of "play" and how games can be used to develop a horse's intelligence, confidence, and desire to perform, whether at liberty or in the most difficult of competitive environments. Magali shares the example of her Grand Prix mount Dao, with whom she has reached the pinnacle of European competition, and whom dressage judges praise for his supple and stress-free performances. Both Frédéric and Magali once thought they had become skilled and compassionate riders and trainers, but found that the monumental challenges presented by Templado turned their beliefs upside down and made them start again from the beginning. They now view their work with horses as a journey of endless discovery and infinite rewards. With this book, full of phenomenal color photographs of their horses, many of whom appeared in the show that first made them famous, you can join—and learn from—them.

Her excellent lessons gradually incorporate ground poles and low fences to build skills without stressing the horse’s body. Throughout, top riders share their own stories and insight, demonstrating numerous ways dressage exercises helped solve real problems over fences, including Olympian Anne Kursinski, Nations Cup rider Paul O’Shea, and eventer Nancy Bliss Byrd. With incredible clarity and her trademark enthusiasm, Savoie arms readers with knowledge, confidence, and problem-solving prowess that will result not only in clear rounds, but a happier horse, ready and willing to perform in partnership. Jane Savoie was the first to promote mental training tools and techniques as integral to competitive riding success, and her cross-training concepts for the horse—how to use dressage fundamentals for every equestrian sport—have been called “not just a read, but a must read for every hunter-jumper rider.”
