Fragments from the writings of Max Ritter von Weyrother – Hilary Fane
Detailní popis produktu
Andreas Hausberger, Spanish Riding School, Vienna writes:
"I was delighted to learn that the writings of Max von Weyrother had been translated into English. This is a seminal work for us at the Spanish Riding School and one of the cornerstones of our theory and practice. As you will read in the introduction, Weyrother made a major contribution to classical horsemanship and the foundation of modern dressage. Now this work is available to a much wider audience as well as to the pupils at the Spanish Riding School."
Daniel Pevsner FBHS - pupil, the Spanish Riding School of Vienna said:
"In Fragments, Weyrother faithfully follows de la Guériniere’s precepts and expands on them in various ways. Aside from technique and science, Weyrother also offers a moral and philosophical view of horse training. Schooling methods are variable and numerous but they only work for the one he describes as a “reflective rider,” one who works humanely and respects the horse’s physiological and psychological needs. This is a message that is as fresh and relevant today as it was in the early nineteenth century."
"As a rider, I find myself returning to this book every so often, rediscovering the relevance of von Weyrother’s words and discovering new insights as my riding develops. I hope other readers enjoy it as much as I do." H. J. Fane, translator
