"Several excellent books upon riding, on horses, and training have been published of late, but I am submitting these few letters for public perusal, in the hope that they will really be helpful to that large number - and I am very glad to note a growing number - of riders - not alone soldiers and not alone young - who require the sort of advice which they can never obtain from grooms...."

The book has chapters on buying horses, stable management, riding, schooling, mouthing, point-to-point, show jumping, approach, spurs, snaffle, forward seat, intelligence, blinkers amongst others.

The book is extensively illustrated "by the wag of the Regiment".
