Within riding there exists a conflict of interest: The rider needs to have control - their confidence depends on their ability to control their own balance as well as that of their horse. The horse, by nature, needs to feel free.

In this book, Beth Baumert, writer and editor at the internationally recognised equestrian magazine Dressage Today, resolves this conflict by taking a close look at the individual components that make up riding and dressage. Beth provides insight gleaned from years of working with the best riders, trainers, and judges in the dressage world, and details practical ways riders can learn to harness the balance, energies, and forces at play when they're in the saddle. Readers will discover how to use "positive tension" and what the author calls the four physical "Powerlines" - Vertical, Connecting, Spiralling, and Visual - to become balanced and effective in the saddle.

Readers will find ways to understand and manage the horse's balance and coordination challenges, including the fact that he is inherently crooked and naturally inclined to do too much with his front end and not enough with his hind. Ultimately, the rider learns to regulate and monitor the horse's rhythm, energy, flexion, alignment, bend, and his line of travel by properly aligning their spine with his.
