In this book, Dr Klimke explains his approach to training the young horse from the first handling of the foal to the first competition. But the book is not aimed exclusively at training with dressage in mind, it also embraces training for jumping and eventing, ending with a detailed weekly training schedule leading up to the first event. Nor is this book intended purely for the dedicated professional. All riders, however amateur their status will learn how, by close observation of the horse and by the most thorough and systematic training, they can develop any horse to his full potential. No subject is left uncovered in this book, be it saddlery, psychology of the horse, the importance of loose schooling, the development of the paces, temperament and conformation and the problems one encounters with difficult horses.
