Illustrated with black and white photographs & diagrams. From the cover: “Jumping is simple. It is we as riders who often make it complicated and difficult for both us and our horses. If we could learn not to interfere to the detriment of the basic requirements of jumping — rhythm, balance and impulsion — then it would be easy, for the same principles apply to jumping any type offence correctly, whether in show-jumping, cross-country or steeplechasing, whatever the pace. By teaching the techniques of jumping — how the horse actually jumps — so that you understand what is required of the rider, this book will help you to achieve the best result when jumping all different types of fence. Not only does it discuss, with the aid of numerous illustrations, the correct way to tackle all types of show-jumping and cross-country fence, from triple bars to ditches and coffins, but it also covers the vital ingredients of correct flat work, exercises to improve your horse’s natural jump, warming up, course-walking, the influence of roads and tracks, how to judge speed and pace and how to ride a steeplechase course, and gives answers to many problems encountered in jumping. This book will be of value to all riders who jump at any level of enjoyment or competition, whether at Pony Club or Riding Club level, out hunting, or whether the ultimate goal is to complete a three-day event with no jumping penalties.”
