KIRKUS REVIEW

A distinguished British horseman presents a readable if somewhat repetitive primer for aspiring huntsmen, showmen, and trainers. The points he makes are essential and are reinforced by a series of photographs and sketches and concluding quizzes. The importance of balance of horse and rider individually and collectively is the central theme, leading to chapters on the rider's seat and hands, jumping techniques, conformation and training of horses. Especially good for beginning hunters with some regular riding experience.
