Among the earliest known works on choosing, caring for, and riding
horses, this book is still hailed--2,300 years after it was written
-- as one of the most complete, thoughtful, and accessible guides
of its type. Civilization has changed radically in the centuries
since it was written, but the equestrian arts have remained
essentially the same. Much of what we presently accept as common
wisdom about horsemanship derives from this volume.
A student of Socrates, Xenophon was an accomplished cavalryman and
one of the foremost scholars of his day. This translation by Morris
H. Morgan offers a fluid interpretation of the ancient Greek's
advice, plus 38 carefully chosen illustrations. Equestrians and
other horse lovers as well as military history buffs and students
of Greek culture will find "The Art of Horsemanship" a treasury of
practical tips and enlightened observations.
