This book is the result of many years of careful study of the principles of riding in a side-saddle. It shows how all the advantages of the modern balanced seat may be applied to the art of side-saddle riding._x000d_
But the value of the book lies not only in its consideration of side-saddle technique. It is, indeed, a wise and thoughtful guide to the whole art of horsemanship. Nearly all the illustrations are from Mrs Houblon’s own photographs and films. They vividly support the teachings of the text, and are besides of great interest to students of the movement of the horse.
