Books Info:

Kottas on Dressage free pdf Kottas on Dressage is a distillation of the practice and philosophy of one of the most highly regarded international trainers of the current era. Having stressed the need for the rider to establish correct posture and a thorough understanding of the aids before attempting to train the horse, the book highlights the value of establishing rapport with the horse and enhancing his mental responses and developing his physique with groundwork before progressing to work under saddle. The text then focuses on thorough, incremental development of the basic gaits, explains the value and execution of the lateral exercises and introduces advanced work including tempi changes, pirouettes, piaffe and passage. A number of commonly encountered problems are analysed, and remedies offered. Underpinning the whole text is the author s fundamental stance on horses and training: I always see the horse as a partner. He must be trained slowly and patiently.

About Arthur Kottas-Heldenberg

ARTHUS KOTTAS-HELDENBERG was born in Vienna in 1945. His parents owned the oldest riding school in the city and he started riding on his own pony at the age of two and a half. Although originally expected to join his grandfather s haulage firm, Arthur had other ideas and, in 1960, he succeeded in joining the Spanish Riding School as an Eleve (trainee). Progressing rapidly, he became an Assistant Rider in 1969. In 1981 he became Chief Rider, and in 1983 Riding Master. From 1995 until retiring from the School in 2002 he was First Chief Rider. In recent years, Arthur has been in great demand as a trainer and holds clinics regularly on an international basis. With a philosophy of training and riding firmly rooted in the precepts of the Spanish Riding School, he is a fervent advocate of true classical horsemanship.
