This fabulous illustration depict formal movements of equitation for horse riding school movements. The print shows both Pluvinel and the future King at an age of 16.
This original 1629 engraving is from Pluvinel's "L'Instruction du Roy".
The engraving was done by the Flemish artist Crispin de Pas.
Antoine de Pluvinel (1555-1620) was a renowned 16th Century rider who was instructor to the future King Louis XIII. His work lays the basis for discipline through gentleness and understanding of the horse's mind, in particular making use of the horse's excellent memory which, if filled with bad experiences, could spoil the horse forever.
Pluvinel exhorted the patient, humane approach. He is also generally regarded as the first person to explain adequately the use of the pillars with which he liked to assess the horse, his temperament and his movements without the weight of the rider. Many of his principles are still used today in the training of horses and riders in upper-level dressage.
