In Volume II, Zettl presents firsthand the theory and practice of collection. Slow motion close-ups and detailed descriptions of movements with accompanying graphics allow viewers to grasp each exercise and how it should be ridden. All emphasize the correct frame, rhythm, tempo, and self-carriage required for true collection. Zettl asserts that by working sequentially through the exercises, the horse naturally and without force advances to higher-level movements. Viewers will enjoy the variety of horses and riders showcased in the video.
One of the few great teachers of classical dressage left today, Zettl is known throughout the world for his sympathetic approach to the training of horses. He believes a harmonious partnership built on trust between horse and rider is the basis for all good riding. His number one priority is the well-being of the horse.
