Detailní popis produktu
Gifted disciple of the illustrious Faverot deKerbrech (himself a student of Baucher) Beudant won the admiration of his contemporaries. General Decarpentrycalled him "a whopping squire." Others called him the"Mozartof riding." Horse Training: Outdoors and High School includes general principles of dressage and even the philosophy of dressage) and some technical considerations that are good to consider long before making implementation. Finally, Beudant recounts important memories of horses (often very difficult ones) that he had trained or corrected or simply occasionally mounted. An important theme runs through the book and explains its title: the full compatibility or continuity between the correct work of an ordinary saddle horse and that of high school horse. Horse Training: Outdoors and High School provides an important historical bridge between Faverot de Kerbrech of the 19th century and the later writers of the 20thcentury, Nuno Oliveira and Albert Decarpentry.
“The horse is the sole master of his forces; even with all of our vigor, by himself, the rider is powerless to increase the horse’s forces. Therefore, it is for the horse to employ his forces in his own way, for himself to calculate the manner of that employment so as best to fulfill the demands of his rider. If the rider tries to do it all, the horse permits him to do so, but the horse merely drifts and limits his efforts to those which the rider demands. On the contrary, if the horse knows that he must rely on himself, he uses himself completely, with all of his energy.” -Étienne Beudant (1863-1949)
