About the Author

The German National Equestrian Federation, located in Warendorf, is one of the largest national equestrian federations in the world. Foundations were laid in 1905 as an assocation of breeders and riders with the goal to promote German bred horses. It now covers sports, breeding and personal members.


The Principles of Riding is easy to read and very well laid out with clear concise instructions with bullet points and also includes tips on what can go wrong which is very helpful. Clear illustrations really help drive home the salient points of the text making it easy to understand. This book is not just aimed at the novice rider, there is plenty here to interest experienced rider too. Anyone interested in riding will find this a mine of useful information which readers can devour in its whole or dip into at will when questions or problems arise.

'First published more than 50 years ago, it's now on an incredible 28th edition but has seen some changes along the way... Some of the more modern scientific research is now being incorporated in what has always been a complete manual of horsemanship covering rider, horse, training of both, lungeing, jumping, tack and teaching young horses.' Wendy Parsons, Essex Rider
