Training on the lunge is invaluable in producing quiet, obedient horses and sympathetic balanced riders. It is as effective in retraining problem equines as it is in teaching youngsters; it is useful in exercising horses unable to be ridden, and finally can lead to advanced work in hand. Yet, as with most aspects of equestrian discipline, very few books explore this essential training aid in such detail. Sheila Inderwick based this book on forty years' knowledge and experience, beginning with essential equipment, tacking up and the use of the whip, before taking an in-depth look at the various stages of instruction. Written in a straightforward, practical style, the text gives both right and wrong ways to perform most movements, including how to contend with evasions. The book also deals with how to train riders, covering the classical position, suitable exercises and the role of the instructor. Illustrated throughout with explanatory line drawings by equestrian artist 'Tiptaft', this is a book which will benefit any horse or rider and, as such, deserves a place in every rider's library.
