From the back cover: “Author, trainer, and clinician Mark Russell incorporates the in-hand exercises developed by the classical masters into his own training program to relax, supple, and strengthen the horse in educated postures. Mark expands on his book, Lessons in Lightness: The Art of Educating the Horse, and his DVD, Riding with Chi: Your Pathway to Energy Mastery, by demonstrating the techniques he uses to teach the horse to respond with lightness to the aids. His methods are accessible to riders from all disciplines.

Abigail Nemec: Director of Equine Studies at Post University in Waterbury, CT, joins Mark in the DVD to examine the gymnastic and biomechanical value of each exercise. Using skeletal and  muscular animation, Abby makes the complex issues of biomechanics easy to understand. She also demonstrates how riders can improve their body language and posture to achieve a high degree of success when incorporating Mark’s exercises into their horse’s training.”
