It was the second of Major Santinis expositions of the Italian method of equitation, and deals principally with the action of the hands and its relation to the natural forward balance of the horse. In addition to the main discussion of the principles involved in the adoption of the forward seat, the author has provided chapters on polo and the side-saddle in which the theories, and the results of much experience, of the system are applied to these branches of equitation. The new edition is, as before, plentifully illustrated from line drawings and photographs, and is thus one which anyone seriously interested in riding and horsemanship may read with profit.
