Hunter Seat Equitation: Third Edition Reviews
When I started riding(hunter) my instructor gave me this book. With pictures and clear instruction, this is the Bible of Hunter/Jumpers and George Morris is the premiere instructor. They say you need to read 2 hours for every 1 hour of riding, and this is the book you need to read. Beautiful photographs make instruction clear, and there can't be anything you need to learn that isn't in this book. I bought my copy used and it's nearly perfect. Quality hardback, that's meant to last because it's going to need to. Make your riding more enjoyable as you understand exactly what you need to do to succeed.
If you have been taking Hunter jumper lessons for any length of time, I don't need to tell you who George Morris is, because you already know. The man is pure legend in the community and rightly so. This book he authored many years ago stands the test of time as THE single, definitive guide to the sport of show hunters, and provides an excellent foundation for equitation over fences in any of the jumping disciplines.
there are so many brands and flavours of horsemanship and equitation and training approaches popping up these days. I grew up riding western, trail riding/pleasure.. and have ridden a bit of centered/ balance seat, and a little dressage as well. I have always come back to my foundation though, which is the old style hunter seat equitation. And while I have brought my own personal touches to how i ride and how i teach-- I still rely on the basics of the people who laid the ground work many years ago.
I think this book can be half as long and contain more information than it is now.
A classic! I bought this as a gift for my young niece, who rides hunters. Morris writes beautifully. I have followed his column in the Chronicle of the Horse for decades and think he is so clear and careful with his words.
What can I say about anything written by King George? He is a long-time column writer for the magazine 'Practical Horseman' which is the first thing I and most other subscribers turn to when we get the magazine.
i just recieved my book today. sat down on the deck after luch and four hours later im still there reading. tomorrow i am taking everything i ave learnt down to the stables and putting my new knowledge to the test.
The standard of modern horsemanship.
