First published in 1990, and now in its third edition in English, Dressage for the New Age continues to be one of the best selling dressage books of all time. In this book, noted rider, trainer and instructor Dominique Barbier conveys and interprets the French Classical Dressage, bringing to life the essence of this tradition and revealing its relevance to the contemporary rider.
“After reading Barbier’s book you will come away with a renewed desire to connect with your horse.” – Sally Swift, founder, Centered Riding on Dressage for the New Age
“Dominique Barbier’s philosophy takes riding to a new level!! Acknowledging the spiritual nature of the horse-human relationship Barbier encourages to take the leap and explore equestrian art as a play of higher consciousness. Complicated mechanical concepts are replaced by brilliantly simple techniques that bring a newfound lightness and harmony to the dance. An awe-inspiring book that you want to read over and over!!!” – Amazon reviewer
