Riassunto: Modern day dressage is split between adherents of the Classical School and those that are competition riders. Some techniques used in competition derive from the training system of Francois Baucher, a French equestrian who invented a supposedly new method of horse-training. Seeger was compelled to write this book in 1852 after witnessing what he considered to be incorrect training techniques used by Baucher. He tried to warn riders that these methods would be very destructive to horses' training, and that the Classical principles were to be preferred to preserve the soundness and well-being of the horse. Seeger predicted some of the problems that can now be seen in high levels of competitive dressage. Seeger's classic book is an important treatise on horse training (dressage) theory that has continuing relevance to the serious study of horsemanship. This pillar of equestrian literature was once only available to an elite group of European experts, but is now available in English. Cynthia Hodges has translated Seeger's book into an easy-to-read document that offers dressage theory that is as pertinent today as it was in Seeger's time. Translated by Cynthia Hodges, J.D., LL.M., M.A. Foreword by Karl Mikolka, former Oberbereiter of the Spanish Riding School and Brazil Olympic team coach. Artwork by Bonnie Hodges.
L'autore: Louis Seeger was an important 19th century dressage figure in Berlin. Seeger was the student of Max Ritter von Weyrother of the Spanish Riding School and the instructor of Gustav Steinbrecht (author of Gymnasium of the Horse). Seeger also invented the dropped-noseband. Seeger was an outspoken opponent of Francois Baucher's Nouvelle Methode. Seeger was the son of a court horseman in the services of Prince Heinrich von Preussen (Prussia), the brother of king Friedrich II. After his stint at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna, he owned the first private riding school in Berlin, which he called Seegershof. Seeger was a board member of the Berlin racing club and was awarded the gold medal of honor. Seeger authored a number of books. In addition to Monsieur Baucher and His Art, he wrote the following: System der Reitkunst (System of Dressage) (1844), which he dedicated to Prince Wilhelm von Preussen, Rathgeber fuer die Stalldienerschaft (1848), Zuechtung, Erziehung, Ausbildung des Pferdes im systematischen Zusammenhang (1850).
