In Volume III, Zettl presents firsthand the theory and practice of third and fourth level collection movements. Half-pass, introduction to flying changes and tempi changes are covered. Slow motions close-ups and detailed descriptions of movements with accompanying graphics allow viewers to grasp each exercise and how it should be ridden. Herr Zettl emphasizes correct frame, rhythm, tempo, and self-carriage required for true collection. Zettl asserts that by working sequentially through the exercises, the horse naturally advances to higher-level movements.
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.
