The Art of Horsemanship by Xenophon

The Art of Horsemanship is a manual for what horsemanship was to the ancient Greeks, but more to the point what it was to Xenophon personally. He felt himself well versed in the horseman's art from his years of experience in dealing with and riding horses. A testament to the man who lived and breathed warfare and survived to write about it.
