This book is designed for all riders from the very novice to the most advanced. Sylvia Loch teaches through illustrations and photos how each tiny shift of the rider's weight will affect the horse's balance.

The weight aids are generally taught only to higher level students especially those learning the more advanced skills. Yet, by including them from the beginning, novice riders will develop a much greater understanding of their own bodies and abilities and those of the horse from day one.

In the Author's words...
'The time has surely come to show all riders how their body-weight impacts on the horse for good or bad. Feel and balance should govern the whole ethos of equitation. In this book, I show through pictures how the giving of the aids can transform the horse in each and every movement so that our communication with this wonderful animal takes us to new levels of understanding and empathy.'

Industry Reviews

...it's not just a book of pictures and a few captions, it goes beyond that and really helps the reader to understand the horse's balance... You don't have to be a competitive rider to enjoy this book and learn from it. * Northern Horse Magazine *
Excellent use of photos and illustrations with explanations get to the nub of how riders can use their weight, and the aid of gravity, to enhance their riding and help, rather than hinder, their horse in all paces and movements. While much is said and written about the rider's seat, this is the first book I've found that clearly and simply explains how weight can be used as a positive aid. -- CP CP * Horse & Hound *
