Bringing rider and horse together so they can move as one is a complex equation. Now, sports physiologist and movement expert Eckart Meyners has combined efforts with German Riding School Head Hannes Muller andSt. Georg editor Kerstin Niemann to provide a book with the answers.

Top-quality color photographs-many featuring 2014 World Equestrian Games gold-and-silver-medal-winning rider Helen Langehanenberg-and a depth of detail not yet found in other books on riding theory and biomechanics makeRider+Horse=1 necessary reading for all those who aspire to a true understanding of movement, function, and their impact on performance.

This book enables you to:
- Interpret the difference between skills and abilities in rider and horse.
- Use unique exercises to improve your balance and aids.
- Master three fundamental riding techniques: flexion, bend, and half-halts.
- Explore ways of creating 'positive tension' in the horse.
- Discover the three-dimensionality of the rider in new ways.
- Learn how to identify and respond to the motion sequences of the horse.
