From the Back Cover
The legendary James Fillis details his theory and methods on a fascinating array of subjects, including:
Early training, feeding, and care of the young horse
Bits and bitting
Lateral, direct, and indirect flexion
Horses with vices
High school riding, including piaffe, passage, shoulder-in, two-tracking, the Spanish walk, and canter in reverse
The light and often humorous style makes this a pleasant read, as well as an absorbing look back in time. Illustrated with drawings and photographs, and with an intriguing new introduction by William C. Steinkraus, this volume is a must-read for anyone interested in the development of classical dressage in the twentieth century.
James Fillis was ecuyer en chef of the St. Petersburg Cavalry Riding School, and at the turn of the century was renowned as the greatest high-school rider of all time. He was a groundbreaker in the field of classical dressage, having developed innovations ranging from the spectacular reverse canter on three legs to the eminently useful fillis style stirrup irons, still used by nearly all dressage riders to this day. His motto-"en avante" (forward)-represents the basic principle on which all modern training is founded.
