Another Horsemanship

Another Horsemanship bookby Jean-Claude Racinet

Jean-Claude Racinet has devoted his life to the vindication of “L’équitation de légèreté” (riding in lightness) which fosters balance by relaxing the horse-more so his mouth-excluding force in the wielding of the aids.

This practical manual describes the horsemanship of he French Tradition - characterized by lightness - from a down-to-earth point of view.

Born in Paris in 1929, Jean-Claude Racinet is a 1950 graduate of St. Cyr, the French West Point.. He was a member of the French contingent in Korea (1950-53), where he was wounded twice. As an officer of the French army, he spent seven years in Tunisia and Algeria (1954-61) and four more years in Europe.

While he spent most of his army career during the time when the military was getting rid of their horses, he managed, between and during his sojourns overseas, to successfully attend the Superior Equitation Course in the Cavalry School of Saumur (1953-54), winning the title of Champion of Tunisia in open jumping (1956), and to become a member of the Jumping Team of the Military School in Paris (1953).

Riding teacher and trainer as a civilian after 1965, he was more particularly known by his retraining of difficult horses, and later, as an equestrian journalist by his always witty and sometimes scathing articles in the French equestrian monthly L’Information Hippique. 125 pages.
