KIRKUS REVIEW

The author states his expected audience early in his book -- he writes for those to whom his subject is of vital necessity and the content of their lives. A large measure of knowledge is valuable in approaching his book as he discusses the buying of a horse in terms of conformation and elan, the training of the young horse, the ultimate schooling of Haute Ecole. Taking from the literature and action of horsemanship, what he feels is the best that it can give without concern for repeating the words of others, he adds to this from his own experience in Germany and France and under the instruction of General von Josipovich. There is an unusual sense of equestrian history here that provides an atmosphere for the candid and concrete advocation of an art.
