  • Deep Work
  • Confucius and the Canter Pirouette
  • Resistance and Ethics
  • The Myth of the Outside Rein
  • Riding as a Mediation

Basing his theories on a study of biomechanics and rare historical literature, the author begins to point a way through some of the contradictory and confusing tenets that exist in the world of dressage today. In Exploring Dressage Technique Paul Belasik offers some refreshing new ideas and revives a few forgotten ones. This book will be welcomed by thinking riders everywhere, by those involved in the sport of dressage, and above all, by those who care deeply about horses.
