Once again horseman/critic Harris takes his red pen to skewer a popular manual. Here he focuses on the confusion of photos and captions and on the translation, as well as Klimke's "lack of equestrian scholarship" and "technical blunders and howlers." He concedes that Klimke is "an extremely good practical horseman." (Wells 4247) Can be sent outside the US for less than the default shipping rate.
