ON HORSEMANSHIP 

Claiming to have attained some proficiency in horsemanship[1]
ourselves, as the result of long experience in the field, our wish is
to explain, for the benefit of our younger friends, what we conceive
to be the most correct method of dealing with horses. 

[1] Lit.  "Since, through the accident of having for a long time
'ridden' ourselves, we believe we have become proficients in
horsemanship, we wish to show to our younger friends how, as we
conceive the matter, they will proceed most correctly in dealing
with horses." {ippeuein} in the case of Xenophon = serve as a
{ippeus}, whether technically as an Athenian "knight" or more
particularly in reference to his organisation of a troop of
cavalry during "the retreat" ("Anab." III.  iii.  8-20), and, as is
commonly believed, while serving under Agesilaus ("Hell." III.  iv.
14) in Asia, 396, 395 B.C.
