A modern classic by the U.S. Cavalry's greatest horseman - everything the rider needs to know about selecting, training & riding the hunter-type horse, from evaluating its conformation to basic dressage and jumping. 
The genius of Brigadier General Harry Dwight Chamberlin’s contributions to horsemanship links a modified concept of Italian forward riding with French dressage and the American cavalry’s vast experience in riding long distances. The totality of Chamberlin’s writing provides a complete protocol to train both horse and rider for Eventing, Show Jumping, Endurance Riding, Hunting, and just plain hacking for fun. In Training Hunters, Jumpers and Hacks he focuses on the training of the horse for various disciplines. 
“It is, in its field, the greatest book of the century not only in the United States but in the world. I know nothing comparable produced abroad.” - Vladimir Littauer 
“So often, I think I have come up with an idea of my own, only to find it in one of Chamberlin’s books.” - William Steinkraus 
“Chamberlin is to horsemanship as Mozart is to music.” - James Wofford 
George Morris ranks Chamberlin as “the 20th Century’s greatest combined horseman, theorist, teacher, and writer.” 
In a life cut short, Chamberlin provides several lifetimes of insight. He writes: 
“Nothing, aside from the dearest human relationships, can give the pleasure found in working and playing with a horse.”  
Expert Chamberlin biographer Warren Matha introduces this new edition offered proudly by Xenophon Press. 
This volume is considered to be the “Standard modern American book on riding, training and schooling hunters, jumpers and hacks.” 
Illustrated with drawings by Paul Brown and with many photographs, complete index and a new introduction by Chamberlin historian, Warren Matha. Chamberlin describes criteria for selection, conformation and gaits of a horse, the objectives of training, stages of training of a young horse, advanced work, and jumping. Each section is well-organized with a general overview including objectives followed by easy to follow detailed explanations.

    This book is a standalone, complete story. No Cliffhangers. HFN. Multiple POV.
    The Dark Ice Collection contains books that are about Professional Hockey players that have very dark sides.
    Alana had loved hockey all her life. When she attended a game she didn’t expect anything out of the ordinary to happen. So, she was shocked when after a game she was asked out by a player. In fact, she had been so shocked she had said No. Little did she realize that that one little word would change her life forever.
    Ronan was a star. He was feared on the ice and adored by his fans. He had women falling at his feet. No one ever told him no— Until Alana.
    She was about to learn that no one turned him down and got away with it. Ronan always got what he wanted. And now he wanted her.
    This book is subtitled as Book One under this collection. However, each book is standalone and not related to each other in their storylines. They are published under the ‘Dark Ice Collection’ title so that readers can quickly identify my books that share the genres of Dark erotic romance and Professional Hockey.
    This book is in the Dark ‘romance’ genre. It contains taboo subject matter that some readers may find disturbing.
    Due to the content, this book is intended for adults 18 years and older.
