1 Fredricson, Ingvar; Gernandt, Anders; Hedlund, Gunnar; Sederholm, Lars; Translated by Captain K. Aschan, Edited by Daphne Machin Goodall Horses & Jumping. VG+ 1st US Ed/HB/DJ
NY Arco Publishing Co. Inc 1976 0668038624 / 9780668038621 First American Edition Hardcover Very Good + Very Good + Book Photographs & Drawings 
Black paper covered boards with bright gilt spine title. Tiny rub through paper at foot of spine, tips sharp, 118 pp text crisp and tight. Tidy former owner's name on frt pastedn, else unmarked. Unclipped dust wrapper in new mylar has negligible wear at head of backstrip, no tears or soil. Gift quality first US edition loaded with drawings and b/w stop-frame photos. First half the authors reassess conventional principles and draw new conclusions regarding the 'mechanism' of the horse: the nerve and muscle systems, the different senses, reflexes and coordination between brain and movement. The behavior of the horse in the different stages of the jump is examined in detail, and routine exercises by which both horse and rider may improve their performance are provided, with reference to specific types of fence and obstacle. A section on the breeding and training of young horses for show jumping purposes is of particular interest as it is based on the methods used in Sweden. The second part consists of a series of nearly 400 slow-motion pictures of famous international show jumpers. These special photos together with concise explanatory captions, analyze the action of the jumping horse and provide material from which to study the different styles and techniques of horses and their riders in the show ring. Offered from a professional independent bookseller. Your satisfaction is our #1 priority.
