Academic Equitation PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Academic Equitation free pdf Originally written and published in 1949, "Academic Equitation" was considered by dressage experts to be the most important contribution to classical training in the twentieth century. This book was intended as a preparation for international dressage competitions but is far more than this. It discusses the subjects of academic equitation, the riding master and the choice of horse before introducing the reader to the author's systematic program, covering the very early training right up to the most advanced movements. The appendix deals with lungeing, work in hand, long reins and pillar work. General Decarpentry was not only a distinguished scholar of artistic equitation but also equally versed in putting the theories into practice. He deals with the education of the young horse and the complications and details of advanced schooling with the hand of a master. Although he claims that nothing in the book is his--his training system is based on the methods of D'Aure, Baucher and L'Hotte--the General's wisdom and deep knowledge are manifest throughout. It was the General's great wish that traditional teachings on the art of equitation should not be lost to those who wished to study equitation. In this most important work he has succeeded in presenting these teachings in such a way that allows both layman and expert to obtain a deeper insight into this fascinating subject.

About General Decarpentry

General Decarpentry (1878-1956) was born to a family of horsemen, with his father and grandfather having been students of Baucher, and his great uncle the Tsar's chief riding master and proclaimed by Fillis to be his model. Decarpentry is perhaps the best known of France's classical horsemen of modern times.
