Masters of Equitation on the Trot : Martin Diggle - New Hardcover *ZB
Compiled By Martin Diggle
Publisher: Trafalgar Square Publishing
Hardcover, DJ, 111 pages.
Equitation, as a sport and an art, has developed over the centuries against a background of different types and breeds of horses, and varying equestrian requirements. Not surprisingly, this has given rise to a number of schools, or philosophies, which place differing degrees of emphasis on certain principles.
The Masters of Equitation series gathers together, under individual subject headings, many of the key thoughts of eminent equestrians from past centuries down to the present day. The series does not seek to promote any one school over another, but to supply a ready source of reference to the ideas of many of the acknowledged Masters.
This book explores the enormous value of the trot in schooling and suppling the horse, and explains how the natural trot is developed into the working gait for all further training.
