Dressage, A Guidebook for the Road to Success by Alfred Knopfhart
This book is on the USDF Instructor Certification Recommended Reading List.
In Germany, this wonderful book has gone through four very successful editions-and is now finally available in English! Aimed principally at intermediate and advanced riders, the book offers excellent assistance for the long and not-always-easy road to success in dressage.
There are definitely no shortcuts offered here, but a systematic approach built on tried and true principles of training handed down through the ages. The author leads the reader progressively and purposefully to the higher levels of dressage in a logical and often witty approach.
Excellent line drawings clarify and enhance the text, making this one of the most readable books on dressage available. There's a good reason for the positive response this work has enjoyed through the years in the German original-and now you, too, have the same opportunity to learn from one of the modern masters!
