This sequel to "Riding Towards the Light" is a biomechanical and philosophical treatise on riding and training dressage horses. It debunks many commonly held dressage myths and explores the artistic heritage and antique techniques of classical riding which have stood the test of time. Basing his theories on a study of biomechanics and rare historic literature, the author points the way through through some of the contradictory and confusing tenets that exist in the world of dressage.
