oa SA Horseman - Equine fitness : a conditioning program of exercises & routines for your horse, Jec Aristotle Ballou : new books

Volume 5, Issue 5

Daily workouts primarily address exercises or maneuvers specific to that discipline, to the detriment of focused and sustained time spent on overall equine fitness requirements. This situation is similar to a human gymnast practicing handsprings and splits repetitiously, day after day, but losing sight of the larger picture that he needs to consider, which is his ongoing basic fitness, beyond the particular demands of his chosen sport."
