Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: The sport of three-day eventing has existed for almost ninety years. For nearly thirty of them, James C. Wofford has been a leading competitor. In that time, he has had the opportunity to work with some of the most illustrious trainers, compete against the worlds most talented competitors, and ride some of the greatest horses of the three-day event competition. Using the same down-to-earth style that has made his eventing clinics so popular, Wofford uses his book to instruct you on what to look for when selecting a mount to compete in the three-day event, and shares his thoughts on the usefulness of various equipment and tack. He then goes on to give a detailed explanation of how to train for the three segments of competition: Dressage, Cross-Country, and Show Jumping. Conditioning, of course, is of the utmost importance in this sport. Woffords conditioning program and his advice on competitive strategy will insure that you and your horse have plenty of stamina going into the final phase. Long before it became the fastest-growing segment of English riding competition, Wofford was a leader in the field of three-day eventing. Riders and trainers of all ages and levels of experience have something to learn from the remarkable and easily understood insights that he provides in TRAINING THE THREE-DAY EVENT HORSE AND RIDER.
