Gordon Wright, the “founding father” of hunter-seat horsemanship is revered by generations of riders at all levels. This book, first published in 1966, covers the fundamentals of riding on the flat and over fences, both at home and in competition. There are also chapters on horse anatomy, stable management, and tack and other equipment, as well as foxhunting and polo (two sports in which the well-round horseman and horsewoman took part).
Gordon Wright produced more horsemanship champions than any other trainer of his era, most notably William Steinkraus, George Morris, and Frank Chabot, all of whom went onto Olympic fame. At the time of his death in 1990, he was universally acclaimed as one of the most influential horsemen in the United States. He lived in White Plains, New York.

George Morris is a protégé of Gordon Wright. America’s most successful trainer of hunter/jumper riders, he now serves as coach of America’s gold-winning Olympic show jumping squad. Morris lives in Wellington, Florida.
