All horseback riders have images of what riding could and should be like. They dream of a relationship in which their horse responds readily and gracefully to their every desire. The riding of dreams is easy. Real life riding can be much more difficult. Why is this? How can this situation be changed so riding a real horse becomes more like riders dream it might be? "Dream Riding a Real Horse" seeks to answer these questions. Through more than 200 pages of text and more than five dozen illustrations, Don Matschull seeks to share what he has learned about people and horses and how the two interact with one another. One cannot learn to ride without actually getting on a horse and riding. People have been riding horses for thousands of years. We can learn to ride much better and much more quickly if we study the theories of riding develop by others. Riders often limit their knowledge to a particular discipline, maybe even to a particular clinician who appears to have great success with horses. Don Matschull takes a different approach. He believes there is something to be learned from a wide variety of sources throughout the horse industry and beyond. The information in this book is drawn from decades of literary research, clinics, lessons, and thousands of hours of riding scores of different horses under various conditions. It is also drawn from working with hundreds of riders ranging from rank novices to more experienced riders seeking help with specific issues. Don Matschull states: “My desire is to help my readers fulfill their dreams of the perfect ride as well as improve the lives of their horses in the process.”
