    Default 1904 Horse Training Book on Web

    http://www.archive.org/stream/traini...0bell_djvu.txt

    It's really quite good. Very detailed and has several chapters on military horses. It's definitely worth a look to see what's new and what's not. Covers horses from birth to death and all British uses in between.

    Thanks for posting this--I love to look at old books, especially ones about horses. I've bookmarked it so I can read the whole thing!

    "Ten or a dozen years ago, no cart horses at agricultural shows were considered worth looking at
    unless extravagantly furnished with the fashionable and aristocratic " feather," but, happily, this craze
    for hair is dying out"

    Wonderful book for many reasons, thanks for posting.

    "Some breeders breed from any kind of stock with a nonchalance which, if not quite ignorance, is the
    twin brother to it. Thus, the fifty per cent, of unsound horses we see around us are largely ac-
    counted for. If a mare goes lame, many farmers will breed from her and risk all consequences"

    Do you think he read COTH?!
