A Search for Collection (Hardback)

Paul Belasik

-  

At the core of this book is a series of 'state of the art' experiments in which the author participated, designed to establish whether certain classical ideas about true collection could be scientifically proved. Discussion of the results leads into an exploration of how working towards collection informs the progression of training and the way in which the exercises are implemented. Furthermore, Belasik points out, this pursuit of collection is likely to take a purer form if it is motivated by artistic values rather than by the rider's ego. In this regard, the author urges readers to focus on their own individuality, rather than being motivated or misled by external pressures; to 'collect' or 'centre' themselves, as they work towards a similar state with their horses. It is a fascinating and thoughtful read.
