Product description

About the Author

Michel Henriquet is an ecuyer in the fullest sense of the word - a rider and trainer in the classical tradition, whose establishment, Le Fief de la Panetiere, near Paris, draws pupils and spectators from all over the world. An admirer of the great La Gueriniere, and the school of Versailles, Henriquet also surveys Baucher and his school with a discerning eye, being critical of certain aspects, but seeing much of value. It was his search, in the early 1960s, for horses such as those used in the school of Versailles, that took Henriquet to Spain and Portugal. Near Lisbon, he met Nuno Oliveira who was then a virtually unknown young ecuyer. Henriquet is proud not only to have been of Oliveira's first foreign pupils, but also of having remained his friend and disciple up to the time of that great maestro's death. In terms of technique, Henriquet was a great admirer of Oliveira's tireless preoccupation with lightness, and his consequent elegance and lack of force. Intellectually, he admired his ability to meld what was best from the school of Versailles with what was best from Baucherism. Readers of Henriquet on Dressage will quickly see that these same qualities are evident in Henriquet himself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Book, A Work of Art 8 Nov. 2012
By MHM - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The author took an interesting approach to writing this book. The text book follows the training sequence he feels is best for horses. To do this, he uses notes and photos of beautiful horses as they progressed from "green broke" all the way to the airs of classical dressage. Its fun to see the same horse at six years, eight years, and twelve years. Furthermore, the book is beautifully written, easy to read, and full of very appealing photos. To me, the book conveys the author's love for both the horse and the art of classical riding.
