"It is clear, concise and informative--like the author himself--and
it is beautifully laid out with bullet points and sub-heads for
every aid, every movement, every eventuality." --Sylvia Loch
"The best [book] to be written this century." --"British Horse"
"There are various reasons why I loved this book, but a main one is its extraordinary clarity, in part a result of that organization. . . . If for some reason I was forced to abandon my considerable dog-eared dressage library and was allowed to take with me only a single book, this one would be it." --"Dressage Today "(July 21, 2011)
"Kottas-Heldenberg's years of training experience shine through in his book. It's organized extremely clearly, making it an excellent reference guide that you can refer back to without much page-flipping . . .Timeless dressage lessons for both horse and rider." --"Horsemen's Yankee Pedlar"
