Successful Schooling - Train Your Horse With Empathy, by Karin Blignault
Blignault’s latest book addresses both flatwork and jumping, with a multitude of line drawings and some b&w photos illustrating various points under discussion. Her emphasis is on using the horse’s natural reactions and behavior to obtain the desired results without resorting to harsh methods. Her studies in human occupational therapy combined with a lifetime with horses have resulted in a text that is clearly understandable and provides a new twist on schooling. While an injury brought her jumping career to a halt, she has excelled in upper-level dressage.
