Steinbrecht, Gustav. The Gymnasium of the Horse. Cleveland Heights: Xenophon 1995 (1st pub. 1886). xix, 319p, no ills. New paperbound. ** Foreword by William Steinkraus, who describes this work as a "cornerstone of the equestrian literature, a work of truly remarkable coherence, comprehensiveness, and depth of understanding; its careful study cannot help but repay the thoughtful horseman many times over." In Germany, where Gymnasium of the Horse has been in print ever since it was published in 1886, Steinbrecht is ranked with Xenophon, Pluvinel, La Gueriniere, and Newcastle as a master of the equestrian art. Translated from the improved German edition of 1935. Can be sent outside the U.S. for less than the default shipping rate.
