The Long Reins Field Manual is a comprehensive instructional guide on how to develop your horse in the traditional art of long reins. Utilizing classical dressage principles established by the author, and simplified from the usual Training Pyramid, this intricately detailed work aims to develop the horse as an individual from the initial steps taken in the long reins to the highly advanced work including piaffe, passage, canter work, Spanish Walk, and Spanish Trot. As a student and Master of classical dressage, including intense work and study in the arts of work in hand, long reins, classical dressage, doma vaquera, garrocha, and alta escuela, the pervading focus throughout the work is one of exacting detail while continually relating the work and exercises back to the four main classical principles. The author, a practicing equine veterinarian, utilizes the training exercises to preserve and develop the horse's well-being, both mentally and physically. As a result, the horse and trainer together are cultivating lightness, step by step, poco a poco, enabling harmony, expression, animation, and artistic brilliance in this time-honored tradition. With an infusion of lessons learned from over 30 years of working with horses classically, Spanish traditions, and French classical dressage, this incredible treatise is in a class of its own, and is designed to assist in a moment's time while working with your horse. Enjoy the journey of oneness.
