The Classical Seat – The Key To Great Riding – Latest Edition


Classical Riding is relevant to everyone who is interested in improving their own and their horse’s performance. The essence of classical riding is being “at one” and in tune with the horse. It is not mystical or complex, and is open to all riders who wish to improve their own and their horse’s performance. No rider – whatever level they are at – should feel it is beyond them. In “The Classical Seat – a Guide for the Everyday Rider”, Sylvia Loch shows how all riders can attain a correct (and hence, safe) classical seat – one that is deep, balanced and sensitive, and gives maximum control.
