It explains the importance of stretching work, and how to establish a correct outline, and the best methods for building strength, suppleness and quality movement. Remedial work is also included to overcome problems such as crookedness, lack of balance, stiffness, etc.
It describes in detail how to lunge, long- rein, double-lunge and school in-hand, from a basic level to advanced. Throughout, common problems are discussed and solutions offered.
