Review Text

The riding maestro's biography of his famous horses. Reminiscent of his autobiography (My Dancing White Horses). Podhajsky's new book further explores the "magnetism between two creatures" - horse and rider which is crucial to sound horsemanship and shows off his (and their) technique in the ring. First as a cavalryman, then as director of the Spanish Riding School, Podhajsky learned to learn from horses and to view training, riding, and instructing as a partnership between him and his mounts. Here he portrays the hunters, the jumpers, the famed Lipizzaner stallions - among them such star performers as Neapolitano Santuzza, Nero, Maestoso Flora, and the eminent Pluto line. It's a warm, personal account, a perfect companion to his formal manual. The Complete Training of Horse and Rider. For these are, as he says, "riding instructions of a very special kind."
