Centred riding is a way of re-educating a rider's mind and body to achieve greater balance in order to better communicate with the horse. Founder Sally Swift revolutionized riding by showing that good use of the human body makes a world of difference on horseback. Early in her work, she established what she calls the 'four basics' - centring, breathing, soft eyes and building blocks - which, together with grounding, are the main tenets of her method. When a rider learns and maintains these basics, then harmony between horse and human is possible. Why a second book? Centred riding has continued to evolve and Swift has developed many new concepts, complete with fresh imagery, which make her approach both rider-friendly and fun. Chapters include: The Four Basics and Grounding; The Use of Self; Learning Balance and Relaxtion; The Following Seat; The Horse is Your Mirror; Discover Shared Energy; Gain Extra Stability from Riding in Three Seats; The Joyful Canter; Hands That Help, Not Hinder; Centred Jumping
Sally Swift hardly needs an introduction as founder of Centred Riding. She wrote Centred Riding in 1985 which became one of the best-selling horse books of all time. Sally continues to teach on a limited basis in her home town of Brattleboro, Vermont.
