Are you ready to build a stronger partnership with your horse? Hoping to achieve a remarkable softness from the ground before you swing into the saddle? Starting a youngster or working to overcome training and behavioural problems in an older mount? Becoming bored with endless round-penning?
Australian equestrian stars Dan James and Dan Steers of Double Dan Horsemanship are here to show every horse owner the basic steps to an infinitely usable training skill: long-reining. If ever there was hidden treasure in the diverse and ever-evolving realm of horsemanship, it is this under used but incredibly valuable practice. Long-reining benefits every equestrian discipline—as James and Steers demonstrate—improving the horse’s self-carriage and responsiveness to the aids, and your feel and timing, like nothing else, and all from a safe and controlled position on the ground.Learn More

In this fascinating book, dancer, choreographer, and visual artist Paula Josa-Jones combines her two greatest passions – movement and horses – in order to help us develop somatic awareness: Consciousness of breath, integrated and coherent motion, and development of movements and touch.
