Xenophon's The Art of Horsemanship is the earliest known work on the horse and how to ride it. Though Xenophon wrote his treatise twenty-three centuries ago, it still provides the modern-day equestrian enthusiast with much food for thought and is delightfully easy to read. In this translation by Morris H. Morgan Ph.D., there are chapters on the Greek Riding-Horse, and Points of the Horse, with Notes on Xenophon's text. Illustrated throughout with numerous photographs and line drawings, carefully chosen by Professor Morgan for their usefulness in explaining the various subjects treated in the text, Xenophon's work appears for the first time in paperback.
