"Veterinary notes by Col. Todd, D.S.O., R.A.V.C., and a chapter on pig-sticking by Lieut.-Col. Arthur Brooke, D.S.O., M.C". "When first asked by Sir Theodore Cook to write on Horsemanship for the Lonsdale Library I felt some reluctance in undertaking the work owing to the number of recent publications on the subject. But he stressed the fact that no one volume has dealt fully with the many intricacies that confront a novice. In the following pages I have endeavoured to guide the beginner on such points as stabling, feeding, care of horses and saddlery; How to run his stable, ride and train his horses". Chapters include: The horse; Stable knowledge and routine; Riding; Use of the hands and legs; Jumping lessons (Riders); Riding to hounds; The prevention of disease and the treatment of the minor ailments of horses (five chapters); Buying a horse; Bits and spurs; Riding school training; Schooling over fences; Difficult horses; Racing over fences; Show jumping; Polo ponies; Pig-sticking.
