This reference book is organised in 27 chapters to present all aspects of endurance riding. "Endurance, A French perspective" is aimed at riders and endurance's fans. It explains in a non-scientific manner everything that a rider needs to know about the horse, its training and campaigning, the problems that can arise.
with cartoons by Steph Teeter The author looks at all stages in the career of an endurance horse, always from the rider's point of view. Leonard offers advice on how to select, then educate and train an endurance horse from the very basic exercices to the high-level conditioning techniques. He discusses all subjects on a practical way, without any fuss. As the author is European, aspects like riding on asphalt or crewing during a race for example, are largely discussed.
France is one of the most prominent players in the sport and is given a preferential treatment. Liesens pulls all together all elements making what he calls the "French System" : the breeding, the young horses classes, the competition circuit, the policies.
Pierre Arnould, Belgian Chef d'Equipe, writes this on the back cover: "Leonard wrote his book like he rides and campaigns his horses: in a direct and effective style".
