Training and Horse Management in India: With a Hindustanee Stable Veterinary Vocabulary, and the Calcutta Turf Club Weights for Age and Class (Classic Reprint) by M Horace Hayes (Paperback / softback, 2016)
Excerpt from Training and Horse Management in India: With a Hindustanee Stable Veterinary Vocabulary, and the Calcutta Turf Club Weights for Age and Class On returning to England, after bringing out the previous edition of this work, I found so much new material to add to the chapters on Riding, Bitting, Saddlery, and Wasting, that I thought, instead of unduly enlarging the size of the present volume it would be better to utilise what I had already written as the basis for a systematic treatise on that subject; the result being Riding: on the Flat and Across Country. In the third edition of my Veterinary Notes for Horse Owners, which was published a few months ago, I have given a chapter on Shoeing, which I treated as fully as the scope of the book would allow, and have, accordingly, limited my remarks on this subject, here, to a statement of the general principles of the art and to the special points requiring attention in India. While revising the present edition, I have endeavoured to apply the information I have obtained, during the past five years, in England, and, especially, at Newmarket, for the benefit of owners and trainers in India. I have, also, added a chapter on Teaching Horses to Jump and on Steeplechase Courses; and have rearranged the vocabulary.
