Bridle Wise - A Key to Better Hunters - Better Ponies by Lieut.-Colonel S. G. Goldschmidt with plates by Lionel Edwards. Yellow cloth cover.Since the First Edition of "Bridle Wise" appeared, riding has made great strides in one direction - there are thousands more riders...
This book propounds a system of equitation which has always appealed to English horsemen, and insists that balance and control in a saddle horse should be combined with the utmost freedom in forward movement. Control without freedom destroys pace and dash and is as pernicious as freedom without control, which is another way of saying that a horse is unbroken and out of hand.
The main principle I lay down is that a horse's general education - i.e., "bridle wisdom" - must precede his special education for hacking, hunting or polo.
Lots of diagrams, pictures and illustrations.
