Originally published in 1897, This little work is intended as a guide to those who have to do with horses, either as owners, purchasers, breeders, trainers, managers, or attendants, and whose experience has not been so extensive as those on whose knowledge it is based. There is no pretence whatever to novelty in any of the subjects treated; but it is to be hoped that such absence of novelty will not detract from utility, and that the hints contained in its pages may be found of service, and assist those who are interested in horses and horse management when they require assistance. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Hesperides Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork. Contents Include: Breeds of Horses - Purchasing Horses at Fairs - The Paddock, Straw-Yard, Stable and Stabling - Feeding and General Management - Riding and Hunting - Harness and Driving - The Tradesman's Horse and Family Pony - Breeding, Foaling and Foal Rearing - Breaking and Training - The Ass and Mule - Shoeing, Diseases and Injuries of the Foot - Injuries, Lameness and Disease
