Riding Logic - Transform Riding Skills into Art on Horseback with Classical Lessons in Flatwork and Jumping

Trafalgar Square Books is pleased to announce the publication of Riding Logic by Wilhelm Müseler. Müseler’s text on riding and horsemanship is internationally revered, and it has now, for the first time, been completely modernized with color photos of the leading riders of the twenty-first century. An expert horseman, Müseler not only provides a wealth of practical knowledge and experience that will help readers attain and maintain the highest level of riding skill, he also offers the theoretical tools that can transform the experienced rider into the classical equestrian ideal—an “artist on horseback.” Learn to perfect your seat, hands, balance, and use of the back; master the three interdependent aspects of rider training—seat, feeling, and influence; school green horses through the training “stages,” from first backing to self-carriage; improve the trained horse’s suppleness, rhythm, and willingness to work; add variety with introductory exercises on the trail and over fences; correct common behavioral and training problems, and more.

Beginners and experts alike will find Müseler’s thorough, progressive instructions and meticulously clear drawings easy to follow, again proving the book timeless, insightful, and certain to educate any rider who strives to reach the coveted state of true horse-and-rider harmony.

“This book has accompanied me through my entire life, and its content is as relevant today as it has always been. Whoever studies Müseler will need no other mentor.”—Klaus Balkenhol, Chef d’Equipe of the US Dressage Team, 2001–Present

WILHELM MÜSELER was a highly respected and well-known rider and trainer in Berlin, Germany in the 1930s. Born in 1887, he received riding instruction in the German military, where he learned that proper gymnasticizing of the horse and “academic riding” was not only the basis for dressage, but for all disciplines. His book on the subject was first published in 1933.
