The novelette of a Slovak writer Gejza Vámos 'Jazdecká legenda' (Legend on Riding) was published in 1932. Both contemporary critics as well as the historians of literature evaluated the book as a non problematic, relaxing intermezzo: from the aspect of editing sequence the author's work 'Jazdecká legenda' was published between two most important works of the author - novels 'Atomy Boha' (The Atoms of God) and 'Odlomená haluz' (Cut out Branch). In the interpretation of the novelette of Vámos , the author of the study observes changes of the genre of legend in the modern Slovak prose. The former hagiographic context of the legend was transformed into a form of irony and parody, influenced also by 'lower' forms of oral tradition. 'Jazdecká legenda' is also a profession like prose, with such a theme as experiencing the institution of army. In this novelette Vámos controversially follows his previous literary works - 'a medical novel' Atomy Boha (1928), and some tendencies of Czecho-Slovak and European literature between two WWs.
