Day five of EN’s 12 Days of Christmas is for all you book worms out there. We see you – the scholars of the sport. You pour carefully through your idol’s recounting of training and teaching philosophies, hanging on every last word.
While you may not get the chance to ride with each of the world’s top riders, you can get an in depth look at their training philosophies through their publications. Does this description sound familiar? Then we have a treat for you!
Today’s prize comes to us from Trafalgar Square Books – the leading publisher of equestrian books. They’ve lined up four books to fuel your winter training and beyond: Horses Came First, Second, and Last by Jack Le Goff with Jo Whitehouse, Fit and Focused in 52 by Daniel Stewart, Training Horses the Ingrid Klimke Way by Ingrid Klimke, and Sport Horse Soundness and Performance by Dr. Cecilia Lönnell.
Jack Le Goff has been known for years as the one of the most iconic coaches in eventing. He set the standard for success not only in the U.S. but around the world. He discloses all in this long-awaited autobiography you don’t want to miss.
Want to strengthen your mental game while also upping your own fitness? Coach Daniel Stewart’s Fit & Focused in 52 is your next read. This book will structure each week of the next year with unique cross training ideas to give your New Year’s Resolution some direction.
Olympic gold medalist Ingrid Klimke knows more than a thing or two about bringing horses up through the ranks, and there’s a reason the hashtag #BeLikeIngrid gets shared so much, because we literally want to Be. Like. Ingrid. Now we can at least try with her book, Training Horses The Ingrid Klimke Way.
While training is important, it’s nothing without proper maintenance of your horse. Dr. Cecilia Lönnell combines her veterinary background and hands on experience to craft somewhat of an instruction manual on how you can make it easier for your horse to perform optimally in her own Sport Horse Soundess and Performance.
