This manual will also prove of great value to any instructor who wishes to condense and simplify the basic tenets of outdoor equitation for the benefit of his pupils. An entire section of the book is devoted to the riding school and methods of instruction. Piero Santini, author of this work, was perhaps the greatest teacher of riding in the world (in 1941) and in this volume he explains in detail and in simple language the fundamental principles of Captain Federico Caprilli’s forward-seat riding. This system was first expounded in the English language by Captain Santini and brought him fame overnight. Modern riding everywhere today bears the indelible stamp of his method. This classic is a treasure that belongs in every serious rider’s working bookshelf. Piero Santini was a devoted student and disciple of Federico Caprilli and was a well-respected author. Santini, a Major in the Italian Light Horse Cavalry, continued and advanced Caprilli’s methods through the early to mid-20th century. With an Italian father and American mother, Santini spoke and wrote English as a second language. He authored 5 books, including Learning to Ride, The Forward Impulse, and Riding Reflections and translated and edited The Caprilli Papers. CONTENTS Part I LEARNING TO RIDE 1. “Forward” Riding 2.
