Wendy Murdoch con 50 50-Minute Fixes to Improve Your Riding: Simple Solutions for Better Position and Performance in No Time
Spending days or months correcting bad riding habits or positioning faults in the saddle is not a logical choice in today's fast-paced society, and this timely training manual provides a quick fix for 50 common mistakes. With step-by-step instructions and scores of colour photos, this book describes simple solutions for riding problems that can be completed in 5 minutes or less. Whether troubleshooting, adding polish, or addressing specific issues - e.g. unsteady hands, crookedness, weak seat at the canter, unstable two-point position - comprehensive fixes are presented based on sound bodywork principles from Sally Swift's Centered Riding and Feldenkrais techniques.
"If you've got five minutes to spare in your day, then Wendy Murdoch can show you 50 ways to fine-tune your riding skills . . . The book scores bonus points for its pleasing layout, full of four-color photos to illustrate each exercise." --"Horsemen's Yankee Pedlar"
"There are 50 fixes divided into body areas for quick reference. . . . The fixes begin with balancing your head and become more and more challenging as they continue to the back of the book. Excellent photos leave no doubt as to how to do it. This is really good stuff." --"Dressage Today" (February 2013)
