Count Antoine Cartier D'Aure

Count Antoine Cartier D'Aure (1799 - 1863) was a riding master in France.

Antoine Henri Philippe Léon Cartier d'Aure was born in Toulouse, southwest France. He was graduated from École spéciale militaire de Saint-Cyr. In 1817, he joined the "Grand Stable" of the Palace of Versailles, which was under direction of Pierre-Marie d'Abzac, as an assistant instructor. He entered to the Riding School of Versailles as an instructor. He was the Master of the Grand Stable for Louis XVIII and Charles X.

D'Aure was the chief trainer of the Riding School in Saumur (1847 - 1854), accepted over the other well-known master of the time, Baucher. While there, he promoted jumping and the use of the medium and extended trot to help with the training of the horses. D'Aure was a strong opponent to the methods of Baucher, believing his training to be forceful and unsympathetic.

D'Aure was appointed the Director of the stables of Napoléon III and then seated the General Inspector of the stud farms in 1861.
