Posts Tagged ‘Riding and Jumping Clinic’

The winter months are ahead and wouldn’t it be FAB if you could train with renowned coach and master of motivation Jane Savoie and Olympian Anne Kursinski, all for less than the cost of a week’s worth of Starbucks lattes?

The good news is YOU CAN!

JANE SAVOIE’S DRESSAGE BETWEEN THE JUMPS and ANNE KURSINSKI’S RIDING & JUMPING CLINIC have just arrived in the TSB warehouse, and these books have oodles of exercises and training tools to sharpen your skills and hone your horse before what we are all hoping will be a busy and exciting 2021 show season.

In DRESSAGE BETWEEN THE JUMPS, make every jump better with targeted exercises on the flat:

  • BUILD skills without stressing your horse’s body.
  • FIND simple solutions to problems you tend to have on course.
  • IMPROVE time, turns, adjustability, and responsiveness.
  • TRAIN and condition a tuned-in competitor with greater longevity.
Watch the book trailer!

In RIDING & JUMPING CLINIC, find the kind of sophisticated, quality instruction you can only get in top barns around the world:

  • EXERCISES to improve your position, your “feel,” and your overall understanding of how to confidently and successfully master a jump course.
  • TOP-NOTCH EDUCATION in basic flatwork and jumping, including bending, adjusting stride length, moving laterally, riding straight lines and curves, jumping without stirrups, and flying changes. You’ll also learn advanced flatwork and jumping, with lessons in flexion and collection, counter-canter, half-pass, ways to perfect distances and count strides, and tips for riding different kinds of combinations, bigger jumps, and natural fences.
  • DISCUSSION of Hunter Derbies and how to ride derby-style courses.
  • HUNDREDS OF COLOR PHOTOS with Kursinski herself demonstrating in the tack.
Watch the book trailer!

These books (and hundreds more in print and digital formats!) are available from the TSB online bookstore, where shipping in the US is FREE.

Alongside Guenter Seidel (dressage), Tiana Coudray (eventing), and Andrea Fappani (reining), among others, Anne Kursinski was named one of America’s Favorite Equestrians for 2011.

Established by the EQUUS Foundation and the United States Equestrian Federation, America’s Favorite Equestrian recognizes the heroes in our equestrian sports and builds grassroots support within the equestrian community for the many worthy causes supported by The EQUUS Foundation. The EQUUS Foundation was established in August 2002 as a 501(c)(3) national charitable foundation and is dedicated to improving the quality of life for horses, promoting the use of horses to enrich the lives of those in need, and educating the public about the horse’s unique ability to empower, teach, and heal.

America’s Favorite Equestrians were selected by popular vote—athletes with the highest number of votes recorded in each of the eight disciplines on October 31, 2011, were named the winners in their respective disciplines.

You can meet Anne Kursinski at Equine Affaire, November 10 through 13 in West Springfield, Massachusetts. We’ll have her book ANNE KURSINSKI’S RIDING AND JUMPING CLINIC (just out in paperback) available at the Trafalgar Square Books booth #843-844 in the Better Living Center. And, Anne will be signing copies and chatting with her fans at the TSB booth on Thursday, November 10, from 4:30 to 5:30 PM.
