    Pilates is an invigorating and proven body conditioning method which helps to strengthen the core muscles used in riding and restores the body s balance. It is a form of exercise which is being taken up by more and more sportsmen and women and its benefits can be seen to improve posture, muscle tone and to provide stability for the pelvis and shoulders - essential for the rider. Increasingly riders are discovering the benefits that Pilates can bring to their sport. Importantly, it can help improve a rider s results to give them that winning edge which, at the top level, can be the difference between triumph and disaster. Dressage riders achieve better harmony with their horse as a tweak of a muscle by the rider can convey a subtle, but effective message to the horse. Eventers or showjumpers can, after a few short weeks, improve their balance over a fence, becoming more effective in their seat and are at an advantage and more tuned in to their horse should it decide not to go where intended! Pilates is an essential tool for improved, more effective and ultimately safer riding.

    Inspired by the time-honoured traditions of the Classical World, Sylvia's desire to protect the horse is reflected in her training methods, which concentrate on a balanced seat and quiet aiding. She abhors the use of force and gadgetry in the schooling of horses and believes that Classical riding is the best way forward for all the disciplines. The Languages of the Aids is not as well understood today as it should be and it seems that it is frequently forgotten or fragmented, and it will be the horse that suffers most when this happens. Incorrect aiding can have a very adverse effect. The aim of 'The Balanced Horse' is to confirm in people's minds what they should be doing for each and every request, and what they must avoid. Every instruction is based on what the horse needs to feel - at that moment in time. Each aid is based on the psychological and physiological effect placed on that sensitive animal underneath us. Over time, applying each aid correctly can elicit a response as instant and involuntary as the knee jerk reaction of our own.

    “Horses are a lot like people,” says renowned horseman Mark Rashid. “When there are gaps in understanding, confusion, and thus frustration, worry, and even anger are sure to follow.”Horses often grow up with these “gaps” in their training and education. When this happens, it can be difficult for the horse to be a willing partner to a human, and he may need to be “restarted”—that is, given a second chance to learn what is expected of him and how he can find a place where he is confident and comfortable both beside a handler and beneath a rider.In order to restart a horse successfully, we need to know how to retrace the steps the horse’s education has taken and find the path missed the first time around. In this book, the first of the expansive library of books penned by Rashid to include full-color photographs, readers are guided through practical steps for restarting horses, using Rashid’s simple yet impactful concepts derived from years of study of martial arts. We walk along with him as he proceeds with the quiet sorting of experience that provides the insight we need to give any horse the new beginning he deserves.
