The Crowood Equestrian Series is designed for the beginner who wishes to take their interest in a particular subject to a fairly advanced standard. Highly illustrated, these guides provide all the information needed to build a successful partnership between horse and rider.
Basic Training is a book to assist the young rider who already has a sound knowledge of riding but who wants to improve the training of a horse or pony. This might be either a new horse or a horse already in her possession that would benefit from re-schooling. The book begins with forming a partnership with the horse and proceeds through the various stages to horse fitness and even initial jumping. It is clearly divided up into sections dealing with each aspect of horse or pony training and is heavily illustrated throughout with specially commissioned black-and-white photographs and pencil drawings by Hazel Mosgan.
