Relaxed and forward are the words that I like best to describe the foundation of the dressage training pyramid; that sweet, positive spot with horses where partnership blossoms and good work comes easily. I like the same description for people.
And Here it is! For those of you who know my blog, now you can blog binge, mouse-free! For those of you who haven’t followed the blog, you’re in for a treat. Whether you have a horse, dog, kids, or a spouse; this stuff works–because it’s about relationship. Here’s part of what it says on the back cover:
We’ve been besotted with horses since they had three toes. From the popular Relaxed and Forward blog comes training advice combining the everyday fundamentals of dressage with mutual listening skills. Blake writes with a profound respect for horses and an articulate voice for humans, blending equal parts inspiration and un-common sense. It’s serious training communicated with humor and lightness, because horses like cheerful riders.
The book is available now at all online retailers. Including Amazon, Barnes & Noble (soon), Itunes, etc.
If you are an eBook reader, you can get it on Smashwords (here).
And if you want A SIGNED COPY, click (here). It will take a bit longer, and cost more than Amazon, but I’ll inscribe it to you and your horse.
