Written by an expert clinician and judge, this is the first truly comprehensive manual on training horses and riders for hunter seat competitions. The opening chapters describe the best training methods, from flatwork and walking courses to advanced jumping exercises involving cavalletti and gymnastics, all set within a sound overall training program. The technical aspects of judging are covered in later chapters, with full details on scoring for all classes, including conformation, under saddle, hunter over fences, equitation on the flat, and equitation over fences. A final round of hints and tips for show day provides an insider's look at what officials are really thinking as they write their judge cards.
