In this book, difficult dressage concepts that are usually explained in complex jargon
are translated into straightforward language. All the figures and movements of dressage
have been de-constructed to five simple "first tier basics." They are Go, Stop, Turn-in,
Move out, and Soften.
The three ways we use our aids in training - cognitive, mechanical, and connected
have been identified and explained. Using these 5 basics and 3 types of aids a bottom
up approach to dressage to create all the figures and movements is presented. This
bottom up approach is a cognitive program - a method of training based on helping
the horse to understand what we want rather than trying to make him do want we want.
