The Classical Seat : A Guide for the Everyday Rider, Paperback / softback Book

The Classical Seat : A Guide for the Everyday Rider Paperback / softback


Foundational Techniques for Safe, Natural Riding

Written by world-class equestrian and trainer Sylvia Loch, this concise guide will help riders of every level achieve their most collaborative harmony with their horse. Loch looks to train riders how to develop greater ease and enjoy a thorough understanding of the simple mechanics of their bodies.  
Of the several instructional books and DVDs Loch has created, The Classical Seat is the foundational text on proper and safe riding technique. With clear language and illustrations, Loch teaches the proper positioning of the rider’s legs, arms, and spine that is both correct and natural. For many, the world of dressage is intimidating and unapproachable. The Classical Seat helps remove the shroud of mystery from the sport, making a beautiful collaboration of horse and rider accessible to all. Loch’s approach is thorough and positive, and rooted in her deep love for horses.

Loch's other books include: The Classical Rider; Dressage: The Art of Classical Riding; Dressage in Lightness; The Invisible Rider; The Rider's Balance; and The Royal Horse of Europe.
