"Teaching Riding" encompasses 50 years of teaching experience by a Fellow of the British Horse Society. The author has taught riders of all ages and stages and this truly comprehensive guide is distinguished by her sound common-sense approach and profound knowledge of horses and ponies. Josephine Knowles demonstrates how to assist the rider to develop feel, to sit in balance and to understand the mind and body of the horse. Covering the special requirements for teaching children and mature adults, beginners, nervous and more advanced riders, the author also includes advice on riding on the flat and over jumps, taking out hacks and taking lessons with known riding school horses as well as unknown privately owned horses. There are suggestions for solving all kinds of problems, for maintaining the interests of a ride, for discipline and safety and general guidelines for instructors at all levels. Everyone, whether student or qualified instructor, will benefit from reading this invaluable and enlightening teaching manual.
