This thought-provoking new book from Susan McBane looks at riding largely from the horse's point of view, encouraging the development of the policy of putting the horse first. Most people who love their horses would hate to think that the way they rode them caused them discomfort but with so many conflicting 'expert' views out there they end up not knowing who to believe, what to do or what is right and wrong. The most important source to consult as to whether or not a technique or policy is horse-friendly is the horse himself. Knowing how to ride in a way which does not distress the horse, which he understands, which he is not frightened of or finds confusing will enrich the lives of both horse and rider.
