Selecting the Dressage Horse by Dirk Willem Rosie with notes and comments by Anky van Grunsven

Brand new, hardback with dust jacket

“Selecting the Dressage Horse” contains a complete description of the ideal dressage horse and what it takes in conformation, movement, and temperament for a prospect to go from the lower levels to Grand Prix.

Including discussion of traditional mare and stallion selections and keuring, the common wisdom of world class breeders and trainers, scientific research into equine biomechanics, and a survey of over 200 upper level dressage riders.

Dirk Rosie analyzes the elements of success and explains the differences (and similarities) between ‘ordinary’ horses and those that become international superstars. It includes the commentary at the end of each chapter by two-time Olympic individual gold medallist Anky van Grunsven, at the time of writing, the number-one ranking dressage rider in the world.

Product Information: A complete description of the ideal dressage horse, covering all aspects of sports horse conformation, movement, and temperament from the viewpoints of both the rider and the breeder.
