Excerpt from The Art of Horsemanship

Among technical treatises, that of Xeno phon on Horsemanship is almost unique in one particular. Even after more than twenty three centuries it is still, in the main, a sound and excellent guide for so much of the field as it covers. This fact, together with the simple and delightful manner in which the subject is treated, has led me to think that some who are not able or do not care to approach the book in the original Greek, might like'to read a translation of the earli est known work on the horse and how to ride him. To be sure, there have already been versions in English; but these seem to me, and have seemed to others, unsatisfactory.
