A comprehensive, straightforward approach to the primary elements of first-class riding instruction, this guide is the only official manual endorsed and approved by the Association of British Riding Schools.
Readers will find information on the basics of teaching riding, including dealing with the horse, instructor, rider, the riding school, as well as advice on the suitability and safety regulations for each.
The authors also provide the essentials behind the equipment required to be able to teach; advice on the correct use and fitting of saddles, clothing, whips, and lunging equipment; and tips for the teaching of children, nervous riders, and disabled and handicapped riders.
