A tandem is a pair of horses harnessed one behind the other, pulling a small carriage. Written by a dedicated enthusiast and skilled exponent, this book will revive interest in what has almost become a lost art.
Paul Doliveux was brought up near Biarritz, on the south-west coast of France, before the war, in the company of the English community which has lived in the Pays Basque since the time of Queen Victoria. Here he learnt English, riding, fox-hunting and carriage driving from his English friends. He went to Paris to complete his medical studies and practiced as an orthopaedic surgeon, living with his wife and three sons in the Sologne, south of the Loire. Knowledge gained from orthopaedics about the mechanics of movement helped him to understand clearly how to choose horses for dressage riding and for tandem driving seriously, training his two hunters put to a Dennet-springed cabriolet, and teaching himself from English, French and German texts ranging from Xenophon to Sallie Walrond and Tom Coombs. He competed in France for a number of years. A member of l'Association Francais d'Attelage, the British Driving Society and the Swiss Tandem Club, Dr Doliveux has written articles on tandem driving for Achenbach magazine. This book, his first in English, was written with the cooperation of Catherine Massu, an Anglo-French tandem driver. 1
