Beleren, (g) an Art, the complete training to a relaxed and satisfied horse
by Lisanne Thomas

What is it?

Back of the book:
Beleren, (g) een Kunst is an extensive reference work for every rider, trainer or horse owner who has to deal with raising, training or riding a (young) horse. For the inexperienced horse enthusiast as well as for experienced riders, this book offers a guideline for a safe, pleasant, relaxed and responsible training structure, with which horses can be fully trained to become versatile riding horses without fear or dangerous situations. The logically structured training encompasses all aspects from establishing good contact with the horse to the responsible development of the horse's body. The combination of clearly structured exercises with clear theoretical knowledge does not provide a rigid tain system, but gives the reader insight into the training needs of their own horse. This is not a ready-made method, but a signpost to increase one's own knowledge and experience, in order to be able to give the horse a tailor-made training, in which pleasure, relaxation, mutual respect and trust are the main ingredients for a training where rider and horse will benefit the rest of their lives.

This book is beautifully illustrated with many color photos.
