Horse Gaits, Balance and Movement by Susan E. Harris

See how your horse moves and become a better rider!
Horses are born to move—a foal can walk, trot and gallop within hours of birth. But not all horses move equally well, and the way a horse moves can have a real impact on how you ride. In this unique book, Susan Harris presents more than 300 eye-opening drawings that show you exactly how horses move. She illustrates movements common to all horses, pinpoints movement problems, reveals how a human in the saddle affects a horse's movement and helps you become a better, more accomplished rider.

* Observe the differences between good and poor movement
* Find out how balance and conformation affect movement
* View flexion, bending and lateral movements
