Jane’s New Book – Now Available!
Dressage Between The Jumps
Jane Savoie’s books have changed the way people ride. She was the first to promote mental training tools and techniques as integral to competitive riding success, and her cross-training concepts for the horse—how to use dressage fundamentals for every equestrian sport—have been called “not just a read, but a must read for every hunter-jumper rider.”
Now Savoie has created a book specifically for equestrian sports with a jumping component—hunter, jumper, equitation, and eventing. In these photo-filled pages, she breaks down the six most common problem areas she sees when horses jump: “whoa” and “go”; rhythm; suppleness through the poll, neck, body, back, and hindquarters; contact and connection; collection; and flying changes.
Then Savoie fills the rider’s toolbox with targeted exercises on the flat—simple solutions to the nagging problems that prevent riders and horses from doing their best over all kinds of obstacles. Her excellent lessons gradually incorporate ground poles and low fences to build valuable skills without stressing the horse’s body.
Throughout, top riders share their own stories and insight, demonstrating numerous ways dressage exercises helped solve real problems over fences. With incredible clarity and her trademark enthusiasm, Savoie arms readers with knowledge, confidence, and problem-solving prowess that will result not only in clear rounds, but happier horses, ready and willing to perform in partnership.
janephotoJane Savoie is one of the most recognized names in dressage, and for a good reason. Her accomplishments and the breadth of her influence are impressive. She has been a member of the United States Equestrian Team and has competed for the US in Canada, Holland, Belgium, France and Germany. She was the reserve rider for the Bronze medal winning Olympic dressage team in Barcelona, Spain. She has been long-listed by the USET with several horses and has won nine Horse of the Year awards and three National Freestyle Championships.
