"Equestrian Engraving The XVIIIth At The Manege"
Thanks to Benard and Harguiniez, you will know everything about defective gaits, on the merry-go-round ... The ambin and the aubin will finally be mastered .... from: Estampe "Encyclopédie Diderot d Alembert. Engraving, Paris 1750-1770 . left leg in front followed by left leg behind. Defective gait. RIDE AND RIDING, | Natural gait. | PLATE VI. This Plate retraces the amble & the aubin. Fig. 9. In this design we see a horse discovered who goes ambling. Ambling is a defective gait. The defective gait is taken by a weak or ruined horse, or one which has been improperly used to. - both the two legs on the same side, the one in front & the one behind & carry them forward, & while he puts them on the ground, the other two legs on the opposite side rise & operate the same movement; the amble horse goes a long way & its gait is very smooth: it is lower than that of the walk, & a lot more elongated. 10. This design represents the aubin. Aubin is a defective gait assumed by a horse with weak or ruined hips, or which is extremely tired after running for a long time. In this gait a horse gallops from the front and trots from the rear. Post horses are fairly common. Artificial Allures. The artificial gaits are those which the skilful squires give to the horses which they train in the air which suits their nature. These airs take different names, depending on the difference in movement and posture which constitutes them: we distinguish low airs and raised airs. The low tunes are those of horses handling close to land. The airs raised are those in which the horses, by their movement, stand out more from the earth. Airs low or close to the ground. This extract from the encyclopedia also shows that the spelling of the time differs from ours ... PS the frame has suffered some ravages of time the engraving is intact.
