Gordon Wright, the “founding father” of hunter-seat horsemanship is revered by generations of riders at all levels. This book, first published in 1966, covers the fundamentals of riding on the flat and over fences, both at home and in competition. There are also chapters on horse anatomy, stable management, and tack and other equipment, as well as foxhunting and polo (two sports in which the well-round horseman and horsewoman took part).

About the author (2009)

Gordon Wright produced more horsemanship champions than any other trainer of this era, most notably William Steinkraus, George Morris, and Frank Chapot, all of whom went on to Olympic fame. At the time of his death in 1990 at the age of eighty-seven, he was universally acclaimed as one of this country's most influential horsemen.
