About this title

Synopsis:

Schooling Your Horse: A Simple Up-to-Date Method of Schooling Hunters, Jumpers, and Hacks Horses -- Training. Horseback riding -- Horsemanship. Horses, Riding and jumping. Goodreads review "This is the first non-fiction book I read about horses, 50 ! years ago. I still chortle when I remember that the bookmobile librarian phned my mother to ask permission to check the book to me because it was an ADULT book. I studied, was captivated by the images of Barnaby Bright, The Captain himself astride. I could see BB's muscles ripple, and feel the joy and power of unity in motion. Littauer, a Russian cavalry officer, emigrated to the US and should be credited with founding the American system of training working and showring hunters and tournament jumpers, and riding in the forward seat. Dressage riders will find that all the elements of the Training Scale are addressed, without fanfare or cerebral machination. His texts,for which folklore credits his Anthropologist wife, are just plain lucid. And his program for schooling, unfolds understandably for the mind of the horse and for the progression of the physical development. Especially for Thoroughbreds whose minds tend to learn faster than their bodies can develop. Anyone who brings horses through field school, events through novice level, or foxhunts will benefit from this book."
