Static Horsemanship




















L’Écuyer Français qui Enseigne à Monter à Cheval et à Voltiger by L. Imbotti de Beaumont in 1679 [again, at the Danish Veterinary and Agricultural Library] is apparently one of the first texts to outline the methods of trick riding (link updated Sept 2013). Imbotti drew his inspiration from William Cavendish, Duke of Newcastle.

{Perhaps they were practising for a race?}
