Riding well can be a puzzle. Two Brains, One Aim by international event rider, coach and author Eric Smiley puts together the pieces to riding well, including:

  • How humans and horses learn.
  • Striving for partnership versus dictatorship.
  • Early training and developing skills.
  • Demystifying equestrian-speak.
  • Dressage outside the arena.
  • Ground poles for the rest of us.
  • Jumping and cross-country tips.
  • Competition psychology.
  • Being coached and being a coach.           

“This book is aimed at riders, coaches and anyone interested in learning more about how humans and horses interact. I have tried to harness my own experiences when I cover the three main disciplines—dressage, show jumping and eventing—and how they relate to one another. I look at how those in a coaching position can guide riders to perform better by making their lives less complicated and more fulfilling, and I examine how riders can apply the same principles to training their horses and become self-sufficient.” —Eric Smiley.      Paperback, 192 pages.
