Enlightened Riding Reviews
"Enlightened Riding" is a wonderful resource for the young rider or adult amateur. Sometimes you can't see the forest through the trees and get bogged down in the technical execution of dressage aids. Barbi Breen-Gurley provides a much-needed refresher course on how to systematically improve your relationship with your horse--and therefore your riding!--through a HOLISTIC approach, and offers practical ways to address problems and roadblocks. The concept of building confidence in the horse by riding with another rider/horse team in a schooling version of a "pas de deux" had never occurred to me. It has done wonders for my mare in overcoming that "spooky" horse-eating corner and, consequently, my own ability to stay relaxed and not anticipate an incorrect response. So many "how to" books are rarely read cover-to-cover...this isn't one of them!
"Enlightened Riding's" holistic approach has been very helpful for me on every level. Very comprehensive and organized, easy and enjoyable to read, follow and apply. This book is a fabulous and meaningful resource that I heartily recommend!
