The author explains that the nature of these principals is essentially very simple. There is, he says, no fundamental difference between the methods employed in handling a new-born foal or in riding a high-school horse. It is only in the application of these methods to work of an ever more exacting nature that the difficulties increase.
The solution lies in the gradual development of a mutual language which horse and rider can both understand, speak and enjoy; the conversation between them becomes more interesting as the mutual understanding grows.
The reader follows the development of this language step by step and is given an insight into the interplay of the mental and physical factors on which the training of the horse is based. Though in essence a scholarly study on lines never before attempted in English, and hardly in other languages, the text is light and pleasant to read and the explanations clear and easy to follow. Where necessary, excellent diagrams are added for additional clarity and the book is illustrated with carefully selected photographs of exceptional merit.
