Living and Working with the Horse of Spain

Living and Working with the Horse of Spain

128,00 

by Peter Maddison-Greenwell and Jane Lake

Nowhere in the World has riding dominated and developed in the same way as it has in Spain where the horse has always been a valued and integral part of a way of life. The Spaniards have never „used“ horses for work, war and pleasure; they simply can not be carried out without horses. This inseparability of man and horse is reflected in the fact that the Spanish language makes no distinction between a horseman and a gentlieman (or, in medieval times, a knight or nobleman): the word for both is „caballero“.

Much has been written about the long history of the Spanish horse, but this book, while revealing something of the culture, traditions and ancestral background that have formed this horse’s existence, looks particularly at his close relationship with man during many centuries. This relationship is explored from a more up-to-date point of view by looking at what it is like to live and work with the Spanish horse today.
