Notes on the Preliminary Training of a Hunter

N.p. Unpublished, n.d. [ca. 1920s-40s]. Stapled soft cover. [Ca.90]p, many mounted original photos (perhaps showing the author?). Very good. Item #31404

Interesting duplicated typescript, prepared for private circulation or possibly for eventual publication (of which I've found no evidence). From earliest coming to hand and backing, through flexions, to jumping and training for hunting. Despite some seemingly severe rope and spur training, the author emphasizes ending every lesson on a good note. "Ease to the horse must follow instantly he complies with your wishes. This rule has no exceptions." The author clearly writes from his own experience; he also seems familiar with French methods and cites a 1910 French manual on setting up an oval jumping chute. Can be sent outside the US for less than the default shipping rate.

Price: $150.00
