Product Description

In horseback riding, body alignment and balance is everything.

That's what Wendy Murdoch, an internationally recognized equestrian instructor and clinician, tells readers in this must-have guide. Featuring easy step-by-step instructions, Murdoch takes some of the most important yet basic principles of riding and makes them simple. In this book, riders of all skill levels will learn how to eliminate unconscious restrictions and use their bodies to achieve a higher level of performance with their horses.

Using more than 200 color photographs to provide step-by-step instructions, Simplify Your Riding breaks down various aspects of riding, including the components of balance in the saddle, timing of your aids, riding with a deep seat and moving in sync with your horse.

Whether it's your first ride or you've been in the saddle for years, this book is a must-have for every equestrian.

About the Author

Wendy Murdoch grew up in Stamford, Connecticut, and has spent her entire life involved with horses. She has ridden since childhood and competed in and been interested in a variety of disciplines, from hunters to dressage, eventing and reining. Wendy holds a B.S. in Animal Science from the University of New Hampshire and an M.S. in Equine Reproductive Physiology from the University of Kentucky. She is constantly expanding her education. Her credentials include being a TT.E.A.M. Practitioner II/Clinician and a Senior Level IV Centered Riding® Instructor. She is a Guild Certified Feldenkrais Method® Practitioner, and an MBS Academy Master Practitioner having studied with Mia Segal, Dr. Feldenkrais' first assistant and founder of MBS Academy. In addition Wendy studies with holistic veterinarian, saddle-fitting expert, and author Dr. Joyce Harman and Bettina Drummond, the only authorized representative of the Nuno Oliveira School from Portugal. In her clinics over the past 30 years, Wendy has taught riders of all disciplines and skill levels how to use their bodies to achieve a higher level of performance with their horses. Some of her students have never been on a horse before while others compete at the highest levels of their discipline. Her goal is to make riding fundamentally simple by showing riders how to achieve what great riders do naturally. Her clinics are held year round in the United States, Canada, and Europe and have included Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. Visit her website at www.wendymurdoch.com for a clinic schedule and for more information about The Murdoch Method.
