CALADE, or Basse: is the descent, or sloping declivity of a riling manage ground; being a small eminence, upon which we ride down a horse several times, putting him to a short gallop, with his forehams in the air, to make him learn to ply and blend his haunches, and form his stop upon the aids of the calves of the legs, the stay of the bridle, and the caves, seasonably given: for without thole aids he would throw himself too much upon his shoulders, and not bend his haunches.
