The Development of Modern Riding [reissue of Horseman's Progress]
Littauer, Vladimir S.

Littauer, Vladimir S. The Development of Modern Riding. NY: Howell 1991. New fwd. by William C. Steinkraus. xviii, 302p, many ills. Very good hardcover in very good d.j. ** "The story of formal riding from Renaissance times to the present": dressage, the cavalry, and show jumping. This reissue of Horseman's Progress (1962) is essential and thought-provoking reading for every student of horsemanship. Bear in mind that it reflects Littauer's bias for forward over collected riding. It was his own favorite of his many books. (Cf. Wells 4651). (Item ID: 4654)
