Author Sharon Biggs, whose credits also include The Original Horse Bible, shares her considerable experience in English riding in this Horse Illustrated Guide that goes beyond the fundamentals to refine the riding skills of hunter/jumper riders and dressage riders, from improving seat and position to advanced schooling techniques and participating successfully and joyfully in competitions. This book offers step-by-step instructions and great advice for all English riders looking to develop, improve, or refine their skills in the various aspects of this popular riding discipline. This extensive guide is divided into 15 chapters and covers the following topics: honing the seat and position, the half halt, riding within the gaits (transitions, stride adjustment, collection, extensions, etc.), riding figures, lateral work, cavalletti and group poles (for hunters, jumpers, and dressage), gridwork (incorporating placing poles and cavalletti), cross-country jumping, hunter courses, show jumping courses, advanced competition in dressage, eventing, hunters, and show jumping, and more
