“The Men who make a profession of the Noble Art of Horse Riding, we have already said that they are held in esteem because as good riders they cannot but be endowed with the following qualities: they must have dexterity, value and prudence, a penetrating understanding, a particular philosophic intelligence, and law of movement, an inclination towards the most excellent horses and an aversion to those with poor performance, a lofty yet docile genius, a large soul and intelligent wisdom, elevated and discursive.”
Manoel Carlos de Andrade.
