From the cover: The British Horse Societys Manual of Equitation offers; a complete and authoritative system of training for horse and rider, from novice to advanced standard.
The methods outlined in The Manual of Equitation are based on the classical concepts first written about by Xenophon (430 354 BC), maintained by the Spanish Riding School in Vienna and now amended for competitions by the Federation Equestre Internationale (FEI).
Recognising that it is difficult, if not impossible, to lay down hard and fast rules on the training of horses in general, The Manual of Equitation offers the consensus of opinion of several national authorities and therefore represents an overall view.
Very Good. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers with a crease to the bottom corner of the upper. Small stain to the leading edge of the text block, leaves unaffected. Previous owners’ inscription to the first blank. Text complete, clean and tight.
