Leading equestrian researchers and performance analysis experts bring together the fundamental scientific principles which underpin competition preparation for the horse and rider.

Suggestions for how to successfully develop training strategies and plans matched to short and long term training and competition goals are provided. Developments in performance analysis techniques and equipment for the horse and rider, independently and as a partnership, are reviewed. This enables the reader to select techniques and devise training regimes which can help them achieve their own competitive goals.The book concludes by applying science to the practical requirements of a range of equestrian disciplines giving practical advice and explanations of how to use science and technology to improve fitness, prevent injury and to achieve competition success.
