A compelling collection of focused flatwork exercises for improving jumping performance. Renowned author and mental training coach Jane Savoie breaks down the six most common problem areas she sees when horses jump: “Whoa” and “go” Rhythm Suppleness through the poll, neck, body, back, and hindquarters Contact and connection Collection Flying changes Then Savoie fills the rider’s toolbox with targeted exercises on the flat―simple solutions to the nagging problems that prevent riders and horses from doing their best over all kinds of obstacles, whether competing in hunters, jumpers, equitation, or eventing. Her excellent lessons gradually incorporate ground poles and low fences to build skills without stressing the horse’s body. Throughout, top riders share their own stories and insight, demonstrating numerous ways dressage exercises helped solve real problems over fences, including Olympian Anne Kursinski, Nations Cup rider Paul O’Shea, and eventer Nancy Bliss Byrd. With incredible clarity and her trademark enthusiasm, Savoie arms readers with knowledge, confidence, and problem-solving prowess that will result not only in clear rounds, but a happier horse, ready and willing to perform in partnership. Jane Savoie was the first to promote mental training tools and techniques as integral to competitive riding success, and her cross-training concepts for the horse—how to use dressage fundamentals for every equestrian sport—have been called “not just a read, but a must read for every hunter-jumper rider.”
