This detailed, richly illustrated manual on over 300 pages was published by the Ottoman Military Office and includes gathered contemporary knowledge on the basic of horse training and equestrian skills, such as dressage, jumping and various military exercises.

In the late Ottoman Empire the military office introduced western riding methods as well as modernized training for horses and riders, in order to adjust the home army to contemporary defense strategies.

Worldcatg lists two examples (University of Chicago Library, Leiden University Library). The others appear to be eBooks (OCLC 656450662).
