Ride Better with Christoph Hess



Christoph Hess, a Fédération Equestre International (FEI) “I” Judge in both dressage and eventing, is highly respected around the world as a teacher of riding and the development of the horse according to classical principles. Trafalgar Square Books (www.horseandriderbooks.com) is now proud to announce the release of his brand new book Ride Better with Christoph Hess.


In these pages Hess collects some of his very best riding and training tips along with well-honed insight related to the topics that he finds most often challenge equestrians and their equine partners. Ride Better with Christoph Hess provides thoughtful, easy-to-apply advice when dealing with:

– Issues with the gaits, in particular the walk and canter

– High-headedness or the horse that is “too light” in the poll

– Inconsistency of performance

– Leaning on the bit

– Falling out

– Lack of straightness

– And much, much more!


In addition, Hess breaks out particular skills and movements that often need specialized attention when in the dressage or jumping ring, and when going cross-country. Throughout he emphasizes that a rider must always strive to improve, for the simple reason that you can always do better for your horse. While competitive and training goals do, of course, bring a certain satisfaction, it is having an equine partner who is contented in his work and happy in your company that rewards most. This lesson, and all Hess’s tips and solutions, are invaluable to equestrians of every level—everyone can walk away from this book a better rider.
