    When someone is à cheval sur les principes, it means this person is a stickler for principles. Now, I can't say without more context (what is the book / chapter about?) to what point it fits your title.

    Bonjour
    Je voudrais trouver la meilleure façon de traduire "à cheval sur les principes " en parlant d'une personne
    J'ai pensé à:

    He is very strict
    He rather sticks to principles

    Many thanks in advance
