Although Littauer's emphasis on forward movement at the expense of collected gaits seems one-sided today, he was a highly educated and influential horseman whose detailed advice is still valuable for all levels of riders. From the library of horseman/writer Charles Harris, with a few marginal pencil notes in which he criticizes or questions the text. On the whole, his comments are mild (for him). (Wells 4643).
