Training the Roman Cavalry - From Arrian's Tactica

£12.99

Product description

Published in 1993 by Grange Books. Illustrated with black & white drawings and photographs. Includes bibliography and index.

The author, Ann Hyland ( a professional horse trainer and equestrian) drawing on a new translation of Arrian's work, analyses in detail all the Roman cavalry manoeuvres, from charges to mounted javelin throwing, often having tried and tested them herself in carefully reconstructed conditions. Although concentrating on these showpiece exercises, other topics, such as the selection of mounts, equipment used, and Arrian's understanding of equine physiology and psychology are also dealt with. In addition, there are examples of major cavalry actions, where the training was put to the test.

Illustrated board covers complete with unclipped dust jacket. In excellent condition throughout.
