Règlement sur les exercices de la cavalerie, 1873

The Règlement provisoire sur les exercices de la cavalerie, chez Dumaine, Paris, 1873 :

A very interresting book for who like mounted-fight, with a lot of lessons and training about mounted sabre.
But the great part of this book is the chapter about french-sabre (mounted & on foot), illustrated with the better regimentals-drawing what you can see ;)

Heh. I like 544; apparently they had just as much trouble getting their mounted students to move and create opportunities as we do on foot:
Lorsque la lutte se prolonge sans résultat, l'instructeur y met fin
par le commandement : HALTE. Il empêche les cavaliers de ferrailler de
pied ferme, en exigeant que les temps d'arrêt soient peu fréquents et
toujours de courte durée.

When the struggle drags on inconclusively, the instructor finishes it with the command: HALT.
He prevents the riders from fencing at a standstill, requiring that any breaks in the motion be infrequent and only for brief periods.
