Description

The way a horse is physically built—his conformation—tells a lot about the riding sport or discipline for which he is best suited. With a well-trained eye, you can see his strengths and his weaknesses, and therefore determine how you train him, on which areas to focus, the techniques best chosen to improve his skills, and methods that should be used (or avoided)in order to maintain the horse’s health and soundness.

Veterinarian, judge, and sporthorse breeding authority Christian Schacht presents a new and easy-to-use system for evaluating the conformation of the sporthorse, with special attention on dressage, jumping, and eventing prospects. Amateur and professional riders, breeders, veterinarians, trainers, and judges will all benefit from his method based on recognizing proportions and lines, already widely accepted in international professional circles.

CHRISTIAN SCHACHT is a veterinarian; German riding, breeding, and management “master”; licensed dressage, eventing, and international show jumping judge; and Breeding Director of the International Sporthorse Registry (ISR) Oldenburg North America.
