Rider + Horse=1:How to Achieve the Fluid Dialogue that Leads to Harmonious Performance
Bringing rider and horse together so they can move as one is a complex equation. Now, sports physiologist and movement expert Eckart Meyners has combined efforts with German Riding School Head Hannes Muller and St. Georg editor Kerstin Niemann to provide a book with the answers. Top-quality color photographs-many featuring 2014 World Equestrian Games gold-and-silver-medal-winning rider Helen Langehanenberg-and a depth of detail not yet found in other books on riding theory and biomechanics make RiderHorse=1 necessary reading for all those who aspire to a true understanding of movement, function, and their impact on performance.
