Classical Horsemanship for Our Time by Jean Froissard - gently used hardcover

Regular price $25.00

From the Back Cover

Classical Horsemanship for Our time presents the heritage of classical theories of riding in a modern, highly readable format. Jean Froisard, one of the world's masters of horsemanship, takes the reader through the development of a dressage horse, dressage in its truest sense, the training of a riding horse. He begins with the criteria for selection, then describes fully the progress of early training that is basic for any horse, whatever its equestrian discipline. Building systematically upon what has been learned, with constant emphasis on rewards, for even the slightest improvement, over punishment, he then takes the reader through the training progression up to the highest levels of dressage. The emphasis is always on the practical rather than the heavily theoretical, a blessing to those readers who have found themselves "lost" when trying to apply what they have read to their day-to-day riding. (6 x 9, 152 pages, b&w photos, illustrations)Jean Froissard is widely recognized as one of the great masters of horsemanship. He is the author of the classic works A Guide to Basic Dressage, Equitation: Learning and Teaching and Jumping: Learning and Teaching. He and his wife, Lily Powell, edited the encyclopedic work The Horseman's International Book of Reference. They live in Paris.


"I highly recommend this tome for beginner to expert equestrians. Although dressage is the focus of the book, all riders will benefit from the instruction and keen information."-- Horsemen's Yankee Pedlar
