Anatomy of Dressage presents a clear overview of anatomy as related to riding, aimed at the layman. Working from this anatomical perspective, the authors, who in addition to being father and son are both doctors, discuss the individual requirements of riding theory. Many of their conclusions may seem suprising to some readers, such as the notion that it is physically impossible to "brace the lower back" as we are often advised by instructors...An absolutely fascinating read. Anatomy of Dressage is required reading for the United States Dressage Federation's Instructor Certification program.
