Tug of War: Classical Ve.has been added to your Cart. This book gives insightful information on how the horse is impacted by the rider/ training it receives. The author who rode to the highest levels, passed the difficult German instructor certification prior to becoming a veterinarian was motivated to find out why horses were becoming unsound. This book explains his findings. All persons involved in dressage and basic flatwork training, riding and judging should be aware of the thorough scientific evidence that is so clearly explained in the book and shown on the DVD.

Training should mirror the mental and physical development of the horse, fulfilling "classical" requirements such as regularity of the three basic gaits, suppleness, and acceptance of the bit rather than disregarding time-tested values for quick fixes that could lead to the degradation of the horse's well-being. Dr. Heuschmann's assertion that the true objectives of dressage schooling must never be eclipsed by simple "mechanical perfection" is certain to inspire riders at all levels to examine their riding, their riding goals, and the techniques they employ while.

Here, he presents an intelligent and thought-provoking exploration of both classical and "modern" training methods, including "hyperflexion" (also known as Rollkur), against a practical backdrop of the horse's basic anatomy and physiology. In a detailed yet comprehensible fashion, Dr. Heuschmann describes parts of the horse's body that need to be correctly developed by the dressage rider.

Describing the basic anatomy and physiology of the horse, this book by an experienced veterinarian identifies widely-used incorrect training methods-especially in dressage-that can undermine a horse's health and well-being

but gives better understanding. So, with the two, you get a good picture of how important it is to understanding how the horse's body works. Now, if only people would understand that horses are NOT human and don't learn like humans do. I hear again and again folks attributing human traits to horses, such as envy, hate, scheming mischief, etc. Such gross misinterpretations don't help in the training/riding arena!

Just bought my second copy to give to a friend. A well written book with great pictures. A must must read for every horseback rider. Dressage, reining, barrel racing, jumping... doesn't matter!

Finally someone who comes with evidence that modern dressage has gone off track, and NOT for the good of the horse...
Dr. Heuschmann (veterinarian)explains the anatomy of the horse and compares classical dressage with modern dressage. He shows how common exercises in modern dressage (even often seen on high competition level!)are not only stressful for the horse's body, but will even damage the horse if trained this way for longer period...

Since there are a lot wrong ideas in the dressage world nowadays (also in horse sports that have their basics in dressage) this book is not only helpful for riders but
VERY helpful for the key figures in our sports: judges, trainers, instructors...
And not only beginners but MOSTLY experienced horse people...

are you brave enough to question yourself??

For a good few years a slow but noticeable aversion has spread over certain "modern" training methods. What is this about? Why? "Modern" usually means "surpassed by ancient". "Classical" dressage therefore, may prompt associations with baroque riding, the Wiener Hofreitschule and definitely not with todays mainstream equestrian sport. Nothing could be further from the truth, is what this book clearly advocates.

Indeed we have swerved a long way from patient, animal friendly expectations of our horses on whom we should feel priveleged of mounting and enjoying every step of a well planned and executed training programme. I first came into contact with the author, a leading German equine veterinary doctor, at a convention in Ireland, where I saw first hand how the amazing 3D animations of the horse's muscoskeletal system would illustrate it's natural and man-induced unnatural movement as discussed on the DVD. The result is amazing and should ideally be seen in conjunction with the book. At last a bright light is shed on the discussions about dressage training methods, the foundation of all equestrian disciplines. A discussion that really shouldn't be "A Tug of War", let alone subject of a modern training principle.

Mind you all: the book and DVD are not amusing at all. Instead, they clearly and clinically illustrate todays alarming techniques and appalling performance and clinical results that have found their way into equestrianism and are supposed to rapidly train horses towards an outline that dressage judges seem to prefer and admire, having little eye for the resulting clear irregularities in the horse's balance and gaits. The sheer fact that this "modern" way of riding has become more of a rule than an exception, makes it a method and is indeed widely adopted, to the dismay of equine veterinary author Gerd Heuschmann.

Perhaps, just maybe, the world's best can practice these training methods safely. But the vast majority of riders and trainers copies them, unwillingly without empathy, without patience and with little or no understanding, repeatedly damaging horses limbs and spine, expecting them to reach a very high level of competence in dressage at an age of only five or just over. Today it is about the quick resale value of the horse, about the glory of the rider, quick fixes seemingly supported by "modern" training techniques. Low and round carriage of the horse's neck and head during training are seen as proof of submission and an advanced level of competence. Wide spread stupidity and ignorance of riders and trainers and on many occasions a staggering incompetence of dressage judges around the globe is causing massive and wide spread harm to horses' physique. I see it live, every day, with my own eyes. It is heart wrenching. If horses could speak, there wouldn't be so many "mysterious" lamenesses. If horses could speak they would tell us it's a rider induced tension in their back that makes them walk choppy, not an ailment located in the lower leg. Or indeed pain in a limb caused by a forced way of going. Never mind expensive scientifically proven joint supplements, state-of-the art stable and field blankets, flashy bridleware, designer clothes and impeccably white training wraps. Start thinking all over again: If horses could speak, they would shout at us as by now we are wearing them out prematurely. But they don't.

A radical change in expectations versus time has to be readopted, as used to generally be the case only half a century ago and as it still is commonsense among a few trainers and renowned equestrian centres. A durable result and continuous health, performance and happiness of a horse can only be realised by reevaluating our training, judging methods and understanding of quality of the horses' gaits. All persons involved in dressage and basic flatwork training, riding and judging should be aware of the thorough scientific evidence that is so clearly explained in the book and shown on the DVD. The equestrian world is very much on the wrong track not having signalled and halted these wide spread practices, bar some individuals and organisations. Horses would have told us that a long time ago. If they could speak. Now this invaluable pair of a book and DVD speaks for them, and for those early warriors for the good cause, who have had trouble getting their message across to the equestrian community which is mostly not aware of how far todays training techniques have swerved away from the patient, efficient and empathic "classical" dressage.

Without such a clear description of the balance, biomechanics and "modern" training methods, horses seem to be doomed to let us carry on without us understanding basic principles that are so graphically illustrated in this valuable pair of a book and a DVD. Watch, read, act and spread the word and we will be worth the glory we work towards. The glory of the combined performance of truly good training and the amazing willingness and ability of our horses.

Worth five stars as six are not an option.

Excellent book - I have passed this one around to my friends and my trainer, all enjoyed it and felt like it really gets a lot of information across, clearly and concisely. A great read for those who want to learn about dressage and believe that short cuts are not the best way to achieve success in training.

I rode huntseat/foxhunt for twenty-some years as a young adult. At age 60, retirement allowed me to pick it up again. However, soon after I came to a serious decision point whether to continue riding. Regardless of the horse I rode, they tripped, misbehaved or were dull to the aids. It was shortly after that I met a wonderful horse physio-therapist/dressage instructor who analyzed two of my horses. A long story short, she pointed out aspects of my riding which were impacting the horse. My riding immediately improved. No more tripping and naughtiness; no more setting my horse up to ignore the aids. I purchased this book as the result of following up on some of the points she made. I took it to the barn and she recognized it on sight, exclaiming "An excellent book, too bad more instructors don't read it! I used these principles with you and your horses." So, two reviews in one; one from the practioner and one from the student. Buy it, your horse will love you for it.
I have always cringed when I heard of or seen horses ridden under the influence of rollkur, but never had a scientific basis for that distaste. Now I do, and I can use the author's drawings and discussion of anatomy to back up my aversion. This book is a benefit to anyone trying to evaluate their training method: rather than comparing one trainer's word to another's, you have the actual facts to make your decision. Everyone should have this book in their horsemanship library. And listen to it.
