With his second book "RICHTIG REITEN - eine Herausforderung" (Correct Riding - a Challenge) Michael Putz succeed an outstanding performance in the field of specialist literature. I read his book with growing interest and fully agree with the subtitle "Problem-oriented Education for Rider and Horse".
My comment starts with three P: Precision, Perfection and Practice orientated.
The information regarding education/training in dressage is precisely worded in form and content, generally comprehensible and clearly described. It is expressed that the author exactly knows what he is talking about.
All dressage-related elements concerning the horses, riders, equipment and especially the active riding and education, considering the basic gaits and their individual demands according to the level of difficulty and scale of training, get perfectly shown.
All-dominant for the high value of this book is the relation to the practice. It shows the great knowledge of the author, reporting from A to Z about his practically experiences and offers real help and support answering problems and questions. With a clear conscience I can advice this book to all people interested in dressage. It imparts knowledge and explanation.
Dear Mr. Putz,
I just received a sample of your latest publication "Richtig Reiten - eine Herausforderung" by FNverlag.
I would like to express my gratitude not only for the sample, but first and foremost for the excellent contents of your book.
Your clear and convincing description of relationship and attention to the classic principles of riding shows, that we rightfully have to dismiss "new ways". To make a long story short: You speak right from my soul and I will like to devote my influence to depict your publication as a must have for every rider.
Again many thanks from a member of old guard,
Your Joachim Bösche
