From the author of the hugely successful titles How Your Horse Moves and Horse Anatomy for Performance, comes a completely different training manual, also based on the Horses Inside Out philosophy: 'Understanding Anatomy Improves Performance and Reduces the Risk of Injury'. Divided into three main parts: Principles of Anatomical Riding and Training; Exercises for Horse and Rider; Troubleshooting, the book contains a wealth of practical tips and exercises broken down into easy to follow, well-illustrated steps showing how riders can improve their riding skills and potential. The author suggests ways to improve horses' physique, posture, flexibility, stability, core strength, performance and movement and how to reduce muscular and movement problems, and reduce the risk of injury. This beautifully illustrated book looks at how to deliver a safe, varied, fun, effective and achievable training programme. It provides all the ingredients for riders to make informed decisions to maximise their own and their horse's potential, gain more enjoyment, satisfaction and improve their skills.

Gillian enables you to understand the anatomy of a horse and how it affects ridden work. The book is packed with photos and fascinating illustrations and includes many tips and techniques that will help you improve your riding and schooling for the better. She's a woman passionate about getting us to understand equine physicality for the benefit of the horse. She manages to consistently present what could be a dry (though vital) subject in a very engaging way and I would highly recommend this book. -- Kelly Marks For me this book is like the light at the end of the tunnel. I literally couldn't put this book down and when I went onto the yard the next day it was almost like I was seeing our horses with a fresh pair of eyes! Christmas is coming and receiving this book is guaranteed to delight any rider...that is if they can wait that long and don t go out and buy it themselves beforehand! -- Emma Butler
