Today is all about dressage so with out further ado here’s a book I have recently been reading, the book is called Dressage A Study of the Finer Points of Riding and is by Wynmalen.
This book is brilliant it’s really easy to understand just what the writer is trying to get across, and I have to say it’s quite refreshing to read such a sensible and kind horseman’s writings.
As you can see it has some beautiful photos of many talented riders, I especially love this photo. The book doesn’t restrict itself to just ridden work and has advice to help you with your horse in other ways. All in all I am really enjoying this book
But enough of the book, check out these two, I would hope you all know who they are but for those of you that don’t, the lady on the left is Charlotte Dujardin, and the gentleman on the right is Carl Hester. They are both shining examples of British dressage riders and I hope to see them both coming back from the Olympics with medals, but that’s not why I’ve posted about them. Horse & Country is currently showing a TV series called Carl and Charlotte: Dressage Superstars, the first two episodes are now available to watch at Horse & Country. I’ve really enjoyed it so far.
Well that’s about it I guess oh and you might need to make an account with H&C should you decide you want to watch it but it’s free ;) and now I’ll leave you with this charming photo from Wynmalen 's Dressage book.
