Ecole de Cavalerie Part II (expanded) – François Robichon de la Guériniere
Detailní popis produktu
La Guériniere’s book, École de Cavalerie, was first published in 1731 and again under different titles between 1733 and 1802. This expanded edition contains all Chapters I - XXII of Part II of École de Cavalerie : The Method of Training Horses According to the Different Ways in Which They Will Be Used. Chapters XIX through XXII are new to this edition and contain valuable subjects: the war horse, the hunt horse, the coach horse and other matters such as tournaments, jousting, and carousels. The author reveals important training advice that will be invaluable to riders of many disciplines. The illustrations used are reproduced from the 1733 edition.
Further expanding this edition is an Appendix including a new translation of Chapter VI from Part I: On the bridle. École de Cavalerie is one of the best works on equitation ever to appear in France. In fact, it would not be an exaggeration to say that after a long struggle beginning in the renaissance academies of Italy, equitation in France suddenly flowed forth from La Guériniere.
To quote the late Head of the Spanish Court Riding School in Vienna, Colonel Alois Podhajsky: “It was the great riding master La Guériniere who produced the most revolutionary book on riding of all time. Unlike [those by] his predecessors, his book is clear and easy to understand. He based it on simplicity and facts, in order to be completely understood by his readers.” His principles are still “applied unaltered at the Spanish Court Riding School and may be seen there in daily use.”
