About this Item

Stunning book and dj showing negligible color loss at still sharp tips. Well illustrated in b/w with a color frontis 79 pgs. Blue cloth boards and pictorial dj. More than suitable for gift giving. Mrs. Houblon's Side-Saddle brings Mrs. Archer Houblon's views to the modern side-saddle enthusiast. Based on the classic work, Side-Saddle, and now divided into five parts; Position, the Horse Paces, The Aids, Schooling, Jumping, plus several appendices which deal with such things as the care and fitting of the saddle and suppling exercises for the rider, it is a meticulous study of the art of side-saddle. Chapter subjects range from basic and specific instructions on how to sit on a side-saddle through to dressage movements such as lateral work and flying changes. There is important coverage of jumping and a chapter devoted to rein aids. Mrs. Houblon's Side-Saddle shows how all the advantages of the balanced seat may be applied in side-saddle riding, explaining this with a detailed analysis of the horse's movement both on the flat and when jumping. It is a clear and thoughtful guide to the whole art of side-saddle horsemanship and is especially relevant to today's equestrian requirements. The text is vividly supported by many original photographs with the addition of new ones which have been especially commissioned for this edition.
