Gravity, Balance, and Kinetics of Horse and Rider. One of this country's most beloved teachers and clinicians, Max Gahwyler presents this delightful exploration of issues of gravity, balance and kinetics as applied to riding. Writtem in his own inimitable lively and humorous style, along with Patty Naegeli's charming cartoons, USDF Hall of Fame member "Dr. Max" makes the physics of riding understandable, and - dare we say - interesting! Included is a both illuminating and provocative discussion of aspects of female and male anatomy, particularly as related to the rider's seat and saddle design itself, which alone is worth the cost of the book. Hardcover. 152 pages.
