    Default USDF's The Journey, A Dressage Training Compendium

    Does anybody here have read the USDF's Book The Journey??

    I can not find any reviews anywhere and am wondering if it is what I hope it to be.

    I am looking for a book that will help me put together excersises to be used in lessons.

    The book takes a key movement at each level, discusses the training issues for that movement, and gives examples of exercises to develop that movement. Taken as a whole, the book illustrates some of the considerations for developing the horse up through the levels. Movements include working trot at Training Level, trot lengthenings at First Level, counter-canter loop at Second Level, trot half-pass at Third Level, "very collected canter" at Fourth Level (transition that precedes the pirouette), canter half-pirouette at PSG, canter zigxzg at Int. 1, one-tempis at Int.2 and piaffe/passage transitions at GP.

    Thank you Margaret!

    It's been a while, but I very much enjoyed the New Dressage Tests Symposium at LEC last year!!!
