The Art of Long Reining

Sylvia Stanier's treatise on long reining was first published in 1972 and has since become a standard work on the subject. Now revised and extended with more comprehensive diagrams, this invaluable book will assist a new generation of horse owners both to practise and to understand this most essential of basic training methods. The book begins with an explanation of basic anatomy and the value and purpose of long reining, and continues with a description of the necessary equipment and how to conduct early lessons. Technique, Danish and English methods and exercises are described, as is a logical progression of schooling working up to advanced work and jumping.
