Horses Are Made To Be Horses by Franz Mairinger

Horses Are Made To Be Horses is both a testament to the life and ideals of the former Spanish Riding School instructor, Franz Mairinger and a tribute from his many pupils and associates. The book is based on notes from lectures and demonstrations given throughout Australia by Franz Mairinger and painstakingly assembled by his widow, Erna, friends, pupils, and followers of his teaching. Every page communicates the presence and personality of the teacher as he instructs, persuades, argues, accuses, jokes, provokes, and draws analogies from many areas of human experience. In dispelling the myth of the whip-wielding dictator he creates the picture of a patient and caring horseman who regards discipline as the basis for social stability as well as the natural order. His profound understanding of the horse involves the belief in its true place and purpose in creation, as an animal whose energies and talents are best expressed by following the pattern of nature-never by invoking force. This book is essential and wholly enjoyable reading for all serious riders who wish to compete in dressage, show jumping, or three-day eventing. The text emphasises a gradual progression from the basic philosophy and psychology of riding, to the simplest and eventually the most advanced movements, dressage, jumping, combined training, and judging. The carefully chosen illustrations reflect just as truly as his words, Franz Mairinger2s quest for perfection in all aspects of horsemanship and his continuity with history2s great masters of the art of riding.
