In 'Advanced Dressage Training', Grand Prix rider/trainer Angela Niemeyer Eastwood outlines the hows and whys of advanced training in a practical, logical fashion, with the aim of helping you to create harmonious partnerships with your horses. Dressage has moved beyond the basics of just riding and training a horse, and now encompasses many complementary disciplines, including psychology. This has always been part of the successful athletes' repertoires and is acknowledged as one of the main contributory factors to excellence in sport. Technical skills need to go hand in hand with mental commitment, discipline, dedication and resilience. Mindsets can be changed - what is needed is knowledge, support, imagination and perseverance.

This book introduces the idea that aids are just that: they let the horse know what the rider wants. When this is understood, the horse should be allowed to do whatever has been asked of him - alone and unaided. The pursuit of excellence - not perfection - is what dressage is all about. 'Advanced Dressage Training' offers advice and encouragement towards the improvement and development of you and your horse as an advanced partnership, taking you towards excellence in the process.

Angela Niemeyer Eastwood is a British Dressage Trainer; she is one of the original twelve UK trainers accredited to train apprentices; a founder member of the Pyramid Trainers Club, a UKCC Level 3 coach, and has competed to Inter II in the UK. Since 1992 she and co-author Andrea Hessay have worked together as dressage trainers in the UAE, Hong Kong, Australia, South Africa and the US.
