Training Hunters Jumpers and Hacks Reviews
One of the gospels to read on show jumping.
This is simply the best book I have ever read on the subject of training hunters and jumpers. Chamberlin provides a detailed explanation of conformation of the hunter-type horse, methods of breaking from the colt stage with emphasis on resistance-free training, and more detailed information on how to bring about a true hunter with training proper. I have ridden and owned horses for several years, have read countless books on this subject, and find Brig. Gen. Chamberlin's approach refreshing and right on target. This is an "old style" approach to riding hunt seat and jumping, but valuable nonetheless and enlightened, particularly concerning the forward seat in the saddle and movement of the horse. I find these elements missing in many more modern books on the subject. To conclude, anyone who desires to ride hunt seat or jump should read and analyze this particular book - it will be of immense help.
