Tractate on a School Mount
When a man appears on the back of a horse, he takes some sort of a position, and this position has its own features. This position is called a “seat.” It is believed that there are many different types of “seats.” Special seats for show-jumping, for trail riding, for bullfighting and so on and so forth. To put it mildly, that’s not true. There are not many different types of seats; there are a great number of perversions on the topic of “seat.” There are too many of them, and unfortunately all of them are factors that lead to “uncomfortable and then painful sensations” for the horse. If you put any man on a horse without a saddle, you will always get approximately the same seat. It can vary a bit due to some anatomical peculiarities of the individual man or horse, but its principle will stay the same. It will be a very deep seat with absolutely relaxed leg, with the toes pulled down and out a bit with fixed thighs. This will be the most natural seat.

Iron: Antique Bits, Stirrups and Spurs
In Iron: Antique Bits, Stirrups and Spurs*, acclaimed author, filmmaker and horseman, Alexander Nevzorov emphasizes the historic fate of horses and their relationship with man by sharing some of the rare and specialty items of metal horse equipment, along with more common examples, from his personal collection.
Nevzorov continues to bring awareness to horse lovers, here accompanied by richly detailed color
photographs of artfully designed and decorated bits, stirrups and spurs from the ancient time of their invention through the advent of Haute École and into modern times. He chronicles the evolution of equestrian techniques in each age belying the beauty and craftsmanship of these objects with his standard eloquence and sharp wit.
This highly informative book invites us to look beyond the aesthetics of decorative art and view this retrospective collection as a guide to how we should choose to approach horsemanship now and in the future. It is a valuable study tool for anyone interested in a thorough hippological education.
Since 2004 Alexander Nevzorov has been successfully advising students through the NHE School to
leave bits and spurs as relics of the past and pursue outstanding relationships with horses at liberty.
Through a substantial résumé of articles, books and films he expertly uses history, science and his own experience with horses to educate and inspire.
