Alison Lincoln has a degree in Equine Sports Coaching and has taught on Sports Science and Equine Science courses at several different colleges across the UK. As a lifelong rider and competitor, she’s always been fascinated by human peak performance, equine exercise physiology and biomechanics and how a knowledge of these areas can help to get the best out of both horse and rider.
‘This book provides the reader with a complete picture of the requirements for achieving success in equestrian sport. The successful rider will not only be a great competitor on the day but will have an understanding of all the components that come into play in terms of training, conditioning and developing the equine athlete, who is their partner. This well researched book will stimulate the reader to analyse and understand what elements are involved in achieving the best out of their equine partner. I would recommend this book to any rider, whether amateur or professional, young or mature, who has aspirations to compete at the top level of equestrian sport.’
