The topic of court entertainments is examined by focusing on models originating from beyond the Alps and circulating in Savoy-ruled Piedmont, as well as the role of horses in both dressage and hunting. When considered as a representation of war, hunting allows us to see recreational places and nature in new ways, while the relationship between horse and man introduces problems such as the care of the animal, the evolution from farriery to veterinary medicine and the rediscovery of the knightly culture.
