This text contains a comprehensive guide on horse-breaking, and attempts to present an effective and reasoned-out system of horse-breaking which the author had devised as a result of many years experience. Through personal practice, it has found to be rapid in its effects, requiring little in the way of strength, activity, pluck, or horsemanship of the operator. A fascinating text full of helpful information and detailed illustrations, this book will be of much interest to modern equestrians and to collectors of antiquarian equestrian literature. The chapters of this book include: Theory of Horse-Breaking, Principles of Mouthing, Horse-Control, Rendering Horse Docile, Giving Horse Good Mouths, Teaching Horses to Jump, Mounting Horses for the First Time, Breaking Horses for Ladies' Riding, Breaking Horses to Harness, Faults of Mouth, etcetera. This text was originally published in 1896 and is proudly republished here complete with a new introduction on the subject.
