“In-hand” training has long been used to help develop the dressage horse, conditioning and suppling his body while at the same time preparing his mind to grasp the movements that may eventually be expected under saddle. Roida relies on these techniques when working with young horses, which she prepares for under-saddle training with exercises first learned on the ground, improving balance and enhancing confidence by refining the horse's sense of his body and where it is in space. In this book she details her methods, sharing the stories of a number of horses of different ages, breeds, and training backgrounds, and demonstrating the steps to teaching them: shoulder-in, travers, renvers, pirouettes, half-pass, piaffe, passage, canter work, the Spanish walk, and much more.

Kathrin Roida runs a horse training facility in Fürstenfeldbruck, Germany. She uses only positive, conscientious training methods committed to the health and longevity of the horse. She has trained with a number of riding and training luminaries, including Anja Beran and Manuel Jorge de Oliveira.
