How can cross-country riders benefit from a balanced independent jumping seat?

What does it mean when the horse is ‘going forward from the leg’?

How important is a low hand to steady the pace?

These are among the essentials of cross-country riding which Shena Kozuba-Kozubska first learnt during 20 years working with the influential equestrian trainer Lady Hugh Russell at Bathampton House in Wiltshire, home of the famous Wylye Horse Trials, and which enabled her to complete Badminton Horse Trials at the age of eighteen.

As well as training horses and riders and competing herself, Shena’s subsequent career has encompassed managerial roles at Chattishill Riding School; Bathampton Equestrian Centre and West Wilts Equestrian Centre, before setting up the ground-breaking Equi-sense Equestrian Centre in Somerset.

An accredited British Eventing trainer, Shena now lives in the Wilshire Dorset borders, where she teaches riders at all levels, and judges dressage.

In this practical instruction book, the author draws from her own 50 years of experience to explain the techniques that many young riders may never be taught, with the aim of bringing back ‘some sort of simplicity’ to modern cross-country riding – ‘The Wylye Way.’
