Chapters include Want of Carriage Horses in England, Foreign Horses Coming to England, How To Breed Carriage Horses, Mares Suitable or Breeding, Failures in Producing Carriage Horses, Trotting vs. Galloping Action, Shape and Action of Carriage Horses and more. Note: This edition is a perfect facsimile of the original edition and is not set in a modern typeface. As a result, some type characters and images might suffer from slight imperfections or minor shadows in the page background.
Produced as a stable-mate to the author's hugely successful Breaking a Horse to Harness, this invaluable book uses the same step-by-step format to help the novice whip learn the art of driving.
