The object of this volume is to illustrate the test of the Grand Prix de Dressage of the Olympic Games. The photos were taken from the same visual angle from which the judge sees the rider. All photos show Mr Harry Boldt on 'Remus' (by 'Ramzes,' an Anglo-Arabian bred in Poland). This rider and this horse are internationally known. They were awarded the Silver Medal in the Grand Prix de Dressage at the Olympic Games in Tokyo in 1964, anda it was due in a large measure to their merit that the team to which they belonged obtained the Gold Medal. In this book we see the rider and the horse performing the same test that they presented so perfectly in Tokyo to the innumerable spectators from the whole world, competing with 22 riders from 9 different nations.
