An unusually wide-ranging guide, with chapters on early training to saddle and harness, yoking colts, jumping, handling bolting and rearing, stable management, "ladies' horses," racing, military horses, polo ponies, hunting, feet and shoeing, and more. The author's approach is consistently based on kindness and an understanding of the horse's nature. He was a Fellow of the Zoological Society. (Wells 703).
