Instructors have two main roles; that of motion mediator and that of educator. This book provides the practical framework to fill these roles. Most books on equestrian education focus on either the education of the horse or the rider from the technical perspective. Effective Teaching and Riding takes into account the individuality of each horse and rider, or the unique aspects of this sport. This new and realistic approach to teaching and riding is from the perspective of learning motion and provides both instructors and riders with concrete exercises to use both on and off the horse to increase effectiveness. This book is for all riders and instructors who want to get the most out of every ride: the best performance possible, the most harmony, a happy horse and thus a happy, satisfied rider.
