More About This Book

Overview

This book presents the story of educated riding since its inception four centuries ago. Vladimir Littauer relates in a most entertaining way how dressage was improved; how forward riding was developed by an Italian cavalry officer and how the new natural method for field riding and jumping swept dressage into the background. It is a gold mine of accurate, intelligent, and authoritative instruction – much more than mere history. The book is divided into four parts which show how the customs and ways of life in different periods have affected the horseman's progress. Court, cavalry and sport have all had their influence. Littauer also discusses modern riding in Italy, France, Germany, England and the United States and each country's contribution to the development of riding. The vista that unfolds in the development of modern riding will fascinate those who ride, teach or compete. Vladimir Littauer was an officer in the Russian Imperial Cavalry and fought on horseback in the First World War and the Revolution. His knowledge and understanding of horses is unsurpassed, and he writes with humour and common sense. Horseman’s Progress is essential reading for anyone who is interested in the history of horsemanship and who wants to obtain a better relationship with his horse.
