A Distinct method of riding and schooling horses and of learning to ride by influential horseback riding master and author of books on educated riding and the training of horses Captain Vladimir Stanislavovitch Littauer (January 10, 1892-August 31, 1989). Littauer's riding instruction was in great demand during his lifetime by both riding instructors and amateurs and he was an early, important and controversial advocate of the forward seat riding system. He wrote more than a dozen books between 1930 and 1973 which sparked vivid debates among experienced riders of various backgrounds. He also wrote many articles on forward riding (nowadays referred to as "hunt seat") for notable equestrian magazines of his day. His methods continue to be taught at Sweet Briar College and other prominent riding programs. Written in separate sections for the 3 divisions, beginning, intermediate level riders and hunters, and expert riders who wish to school horses and become truly expert horsemen. Includes a new chapter on jumping and showing. RARE/QUITE SCARCE TITLE. Will ship from United States.
Berri Chamorel. Good in Good jacket. 9 1/4" 370 pages. "Captain Littauer divides riders into three groups: the beginners and those who ride weekends for the fun of it; the intermediate group who hunt and ride in horse shows; and the top group who wish to school horses and become truly expert horsemen. Most books on equitation fail to recognize the different requirements of these three divisions, and the weekend rider is led to attempt methods that are beyond his needs and abilities. The same is often is true of the intermediate group, who have niether the time nor the need for advanced equitation." Text is clean and tight. Red cloth cover with black & gold detailing on its spine and faded gold figure on the front board is rubbed on the ends of the spine and bumped at the top. Dust jacket is price clipped and it has many small tears on its edges.
