|What a terrific book. It was fun to get a glimpse of dressage back when it was so uncommon in the US, and I was very impressed with Ms. Endicott's courage in suddenly packing up her horse and her life in her 50's to train in Germany with someone she hardly knew - and she didn't even speak German!|
She was very fortunate to train with Christensen before his death, and I'm glad she took the time to share the experience with the next generation of dressage riders. It's a well written account, and I think even non-horsemen would enjoy it.
