4- THE CARRIAGE OF AN ARISTOCRAT IN PETROGRAD Russia is the home of mettlesome horses and of inimitable horsemanship. The wiry, enduring horse of the steppes has been crossed with the larger-boned, dragoon-mount of East Prussian and Silesian breeders. The resulting strain is powerful, clean-limbed, speedy. Horsemanship is an important part of the Russian gentleman's education. Elegance of carriage on horseback andadmirable driving are more often seen inthe Tsar's domain than in any other part of Europe.
