Overview

This text contains a practical instruction manual for the driving, riding, general care and management of horses, written by a cavalry officer. The author's original intention in composing this volume was to render horse-proprietors independent of the dictation of ignorant farriers and grooms. This text avoids technicalities, and endeavours to present the author's dissertations on disease in the most comprehensive terms possible, proposing only simple remedies as far as they go. Written in clear and concise language, and containing a plethora of detailed illustrations, this text will greatly appeal to discerning equestrians and collectors of antique equine literature. The chapters of this book include: Breeding, Selecting, Buying, Stabling, Grooming, Haltering, Clothing, Feeding, Watering, Grazing, Training, Exercising, Work, Bridling, Saddling, Riding, Harnessing, Driving, Drawing, Shoeing, etcetera. This text was first published in 1867, and is proudly republished now, complete with a new introduction on the care and management of horses.
