I ran across some blog posts talking about a book called “The Science of Equestrian Sports Theory, Practice and Performance of the Equestrian Rider” by Inga Wolframm. The reviews were great, and blog posts made the book sound extremely informative and helpful for dressage riders.
The book is for sale for $145 (way out of my price range). However, she has podcasts and videos on her website that are free to listen/view. I’ll include the links below. She also has scientific publications available if you contact her.

While looking for a way to add her podcasts to my phone, I ran into Chris Staffords Radio on Podbean. It includes numerous podcasts “covering news, views and interviews from around the world of horse sports”. The Inga Wolframm podcasts are included in the feed.
