He clearly explains what one should feel and do on, as if one is part of the horse, completely united with it in all of its movements.

The Way to Perfect Horsemanship is an outstanding work in the vast literature devoted to horsemanship. It provides, for the first time, a clear insight into the psychological makeup of the horse, its muscular system, the mechanics of its movement, and the aids to human-to-horse communication. Udo Burger presents his philosophy of riding in a scientific manner, asserting that no one can no more learn to ride without a knowledge of horse physiology and psychology than one can learn the art of medecine without a background in health and disease. He clearly explains what one should feel and do on horseback--ultimately, as if one is part of the horse, completely united with it in all of its movements. Anyone with a genuine empathy for horses--wether teacher, trainer, competitor, or occasional rider--will benefit enormously from reading this classic work on horsemanship. The late Udo Burger was an accomplished horseman and one of Germany's most esteemed equine veterinarians.

This book is written by a man who knows horses from top to bottom and from inside out, plus he clearly loves these magnificent animals. I would recommend this book to anyone who cannot get enough of the wisdom through the ages of the best man a has ever achieved through his relationship with horses. There i s a historical context and a physiological context tht implies a methodology for working with horses that is a perfect balance of science and art. I savored every word and it showed in my riding.

Very happy with my purchase. Would highly recommend this book to any horseman.
Sadly out of print (2006), this book in either its German or English edition contains important images and text. Coeval with the recent popularity of riding in hyperflexion, as the Federation Equestre Internationale calls "round and deep," the classical development of the horse's mind and body have become "a little lost." Horses ridden in the exaggerated profile of hyperflexion during training are thought to be like "bows" with the spine the bow and the belly muscles the "string," as proposed by prominent advocates of this schooling method. A bow is much too simple an analogy to understand biomechanics of the horse's elastic system, as an examination of the last chapter in Burger's book indicates. That elastic system is diagrammed by Burger: it is shown with its diverse connective tissues of ligament, tendon, cartilage in relation to bones and important muscles. In the present dressage arena, many horses exhibit locked necks (teapot neck), flawed on the forehand trots, hang on the bit with the molar of the lower jaw (boring on the bit), even in Olympic competition. While not all the problems of modern competition may be laid at the doorstep of misunderstood biomechanics, the correlation (note I do not use the word "cause") with extreme flexions in many training agendas is hard to ignore. Burger, as a veterinarian, is very clear about the relation between training methods, the characteristics of Baroque, Thoroughbred and warmblood breeds and the heathy gymnastic progress of horses.

If all you do is compare Burger's correct images of horses jumping, riding cross country and in the dressage arena with photos in today's glossy publications, you will see what I mean. You will, even as a novice, understand what correct gaits mean in terms of a horse's performance and well-being. As a dressage judge, author and rider, I know that people in the audience as well as competitors can influence the elegance and harmony that unify sport and art. People ride how they are judged: a knowing audience provides important feedback to organizations that showcase their athletes in public. If you had only a few books in your library on horses, this one should be there.

I hope J. A. Allen (the publisher of my copy) reads the reviews on this page and reissues the book!
