Bridle Paths: Europe's Most Famous Equestrian Explorer Rides through Englandby Aime Tschiffely
Through the ancient New Forest, over the lonely mountains
What does the world’s most famous equestrian explorer do when he comes home to England after making a 10,000 mile ride from Argentina to Washington, DC? He writes a best-selling book about his adventures, “Tschiffely’s Ride”, then sets off on a new horse to explore rural 1930s Britain.
Through the ancient New Forest, over the lonely mountains of Wales, and across the rugged landscape of Scotland, the renowned author investigated the nooks and crannies of this island kingdom. Mounted on his gentle Cob mare, Violet, Tschiffely details the last roving adventure of its kind. “Bridle Paths” is a final poetic look at a now-vanished Britain, as it was before the advent of suburbia changed it forever.
This superb book is amply illustrated with Tschiffely’s own pencil drawings. As a bonus, it includes a special appendix listing the equipment used by the mounted traveler, as well as detailed sketches of the method he used to pack his horse.
No equestrian travel collection is complete without this classic tale.
