Summary:
"More than two hundred Oriental horses were imported into the British Isles between 1650 and 1750. With the horses came Eastern ideas about horsemanship and the relationship between horses and humans. Landry's ground-breaking archival research reveals how these Eastern imports profoundly influenced riding and racing styles, as well as literature and sporting art."--Jacket.
