Classical Schooling with the Horse in Mind

Horse Books

Trafalgar Square Books is pleased to announce the publication of Classical Schooling with the Horse in Mind by Anja Beran. Beran provides readers a twenty-first-century classical riding “how-to” guide. Throughout, gorgeous color photographs demonstrate movements and lessons on horses at various stages of schooling. In addition, a final chapter on basic equine anatomy by the renowned German veterinarian Dr. Gerd Heuschmann affirms Beran’s methods with science. Topics include: the rider’s physical conditioning, posture, and coordination; learning devices and riding instructors; selecting a horse by breed, age, gender, and character; housing, feeding, grooming, and riding equipment; starting the green horse; gymnastic exercises, halting, and transitions; teaching piaffe, passage, tempi changes, and pirouettes; achieving true collection; the horse’s skeleton and musculature and riding’s impact on it, and much more.

Whether a novice rider with limited experience, or an expert equestrian; whether training a green youngster or polishing an advanced competitor, this lovely, thoughtful book provides the ultimate modern reference in classical training technique.

“For a long time now there has been a need for such a book—unreservedly dedicated to the well-being of the horse, despite training to the very highest level. It should become standard reading for every dedicated horse-lover.” —Klaus Balkenhol, Chef d’Equipe US Dressage Team, 2001–Present

Horses brought ANJA BERAN to Portugal in 1985, where she initially rode with Luis Valenca, and later met and worked intensively with Manuel Jorge de Oliveira, who was her mentor for many years. At home in Germany, she spent 16 years under the tutelage of Marc de Broissia, training horses of all breeds before eventually managing and running Gut Rosenhof, an astoundingly beautiful mountain farm and training facility in Rudratsried, Bayern, Germany. Horses are now sent from all over the world to work with her and her outstanding staff—at Gut Rosenhof, every horse is allowed to develop at his own individual speed, gently, and with great care for the classical ideal of true horse and rider harmony.
