Horses And Roads Or How To Keep A Horse Sound On His Legs (eBook)
de Free Lance
Sobre o livro
First published in 1880, this vintage book contains a series of papers on the subject of riding horses on roads, with chapters on avoiding accidents, proper care and maintenance of both horse and carriage, trips for horse control, notes on shoeing, and much more. "Horses and Roads" will appeal to modern readers with an interest in traditional horsemanship, and it is not to be missed by collectors of allied literature. Contents include: "Spring and Brakes to Vehicles", "Douglas on Horse-shoeing-Street Accidents and Brakes-Lord Pembroke and Mayhew on Servants", "Nostrums-Arsenic and Antimony-Hoof-ointments-Stoppings", "Litter-Xenophon and Lord Pembroke on Bare Paving for Stalls-Physicking and Blistering", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on maintaining and caring for horses.
