General Chamberlin: America's Equestrian Genius – Warren Matha
Detailní popis produktu
“Beyond his horsemanship, in an era that produced the greatest crop of outstanding soldiers in America’s history, Harry Chamberlin was a soldier’s soldier…He represents the model military professional…” - Historian Lt. Col. Louis DiMarco, Ph.D. Years earlier, the Commandant of the famous Italian Cavalry School at Tor di Quinto, says of Chamberlin: “the pupil has surpassed his master.” Years later, George H. Morris calls Chamberlin the “founding father of equestrian sport in the United States.” James Wofford ranks him “second only to Caprilli in international influence” and writes: “Chamberlin is to horsemanship as Mozart is to music.” Also available for free Worldwide shipping included - use the drop-down menu. About the author
Warren C. Matha retired from structured finance consulting in 2005. He inherited his lifetime love of horses, history, and cavalry from his father who served as an instructor in the horsemanship department at Ft. Riley and rode border patrol with the horse-mounted 5th Cavalry Regiment of the 1st Cavalry Division.
His father insisted, as a prerequisite to buying a horse, that he study, at age 14, the US Cavalry’s manual Horsemanship and Horsemastership as the source of all equestrian wisdom. He studied basic dressage with Thomas Poulin, spent 45 minutes a day, 4 days a week, for 5 months on a longing line under the critical eye of Sharon Poulin, the wife of Bronze Team medalist Michael Poulin. He spent extended time in Europe to observe the training protocols of the riding schools at Saumur, Warendorf, and Vienna. George H. Morris’ discussion in The American Jumping Style regarding the contributions of American cavalry officers to show jumping inspired him to write the Chamberlin biography and its companion volume, The Chamberlin Reader as a continuation of Mr. Morris’ fine work. He has ridden horses, off and on, for 60 years.
