At last, a dressage book with a difference: how to train your horse and enjoy it!
Team GB Olympic team gold medalist Carl Hester gives us a fresh slant on dressage training - the key words being enjoyment and fun. They offer advice on training all types of horse and all levels of rider. They explain how to set about improving the horse's paces and suppleness, whilst keeping him happy and enthusiastic in his work.
They describe how to ride dressage movements, from simple circles to flying changes, pointing out common mistakes and how to correct them. The pages are peppered with vital tips and step-by-step instructions, and there are over specially shot color photos of Carl schooling his horses at home, bringing on youngsters, and fine-tuning the more experienced superstars. This book is about every rider making the most of his or her own potential and, in the process, producing a horse that is more pleasing to ride and more athletic in its body.

Horse Riding and Training
Rating details. Sort order. They went to Germany with my daughter and I. We went through quite a process, and they did it with utmost integrity. They were very focused on getting the right horse for her. Also the boarding, care and facility have always been a first-class operation. They are straightforward and committed to both the horse and client. Nicholas and David are both very dedicated and straight-forward as trainers.

They are really good at keeping it fun, while also being fair to the horse. They push me more than any other trainer I've had but they make sure that I am being fair in my training too. Everyone at Marcus Fyfe Dressage is very supportive and the barn has a really great energy. I had a splendid time riding with David in one of his clinics.

He was very determined to help us improve especially with getting my mare more up in the shoulder to compliment her exuberant hind leg, and he kept the energy of the lesson relaxed yet mentally stimulating at the same time. My horse improved tremendously for the duration of the lesson. David made slight changes to my position, which I found to be extremely important and effective.

David expresses such a wonderful passion for helping both the horse and rider grow to their potential. I lived and competed in Europe for six years and I have ridden with some legends, but David Marcus is one of the best instructors I have had. His communication skills are stellar, which makes the difference between an instructor who sees a problem and an instructor who can identify a problem, find a solution, communicate the mechanics of the solution to the rider, and if all else fails get on the horse! Not only did I ride with him twice now in a clinic, but I had four of my students and an additional training horse have sessions with David.
Everyone came away with useful nuggets of information.
I would recommend to anyone at any level in their riding to take a clinic with David if they have the opportunity. As a lower level rider, I feared I would be wasting David's time. But he is a patient and encouraging teacher who helped me work on my position, rider aids, and a warm-up program for my horse.
He is a unique clinician in that he does not give the same lesson to every rider and he actually is happy to ride your horse to get a better understanding of the issues! Most importantly, he explains things in a way that makes it simple to understand. I would ride with him again in a heartbeat! Marcus Fyffe Dressage.
