The Event Horse - Sheila Willcox

The Event Horse - Sheila Willcox


$12.95 $7.95

Sheila Willcox needs no introduction to the equestrian world. Her name is synonymous with excellence in riding competition. She is the only rider to have won the Badminton Three Day Event for three years in succession. She has held the European Individual Championship title, was a member of two winning British teams, and won eight major Three Day Events and innumerable other horse trials. Her record is unsurpassed for the production of well-trained horses, and it was chiefly due to her successes that the rule barring ladies from the Olympic Games was changed.

Her experience in training and competing up to the time of her near fatal accident at the Tidworth Trials in 1971, provides the material for this book. The Event Horse covers all aspects of eventing, from the choice of a horse through systematic preparatory training for dressage, show jumping and cross country, to actual participation in One Day and Three Day Events.

Since her accident, Sheila Willcox has become one of the leading judges in the dressage section at One Day and Three Day Events. If the success of her aim is to be assessed, she has succeeded beyond any possible doubt.

Illustrated with photographs and diagrams, the unique guide for both experienced and inexperienced riders is profoundly knowledgeable, carefully specific in its advice, and clearly written.
