The instant classic on horse movement is now completely revised and updated with color illustrations.

Horses are born to move--a foal can walk, trot and gallop within hours of birth. But not all horses move equally well, and the way a horse moves can have a real impact on how you ride. In this unique book, Susan Harris presents more than 300 eye-opening drawings that show you exactly how horses move. She illustrates movements common to all horses, pinpoints movement problems, reveals how a human in the saddle affects a horse's movement and helps you become a better, more accomplished rider.

  • Get a close-up look at horse gaits and transitions.
  • Observe the differences between good and poor movement.
  • Find out how balance and conformation affect movement.
  • View flexion, bending and lateral movements.
  • See the impact of shoeing and riding on movement.
  • Discover practical tips to improve your horse's movement
