Product description

From the preface:
The first rule of efficient stable management is a complete understanding between owner, groom and horse. I attach such high importance to this that I maintain that there can be no real success in horse-keeping without it. In the following pages, written with this end in view, I try to describe not only what the master can expect from his man, but also the help he should give him, and in addition what the horse has the right to expect from both. I have never for a moment lost sight of this co-operation, and in order to make the idea effective at a time when the difficulty of finding trained grooms is very great, and an exact knowledge of stable matters is increasingly rare among young owners, I have kept the book severely practical, and have worded it so simply as to bring it within the scope of any readers understanding. The other member of the trio, the horse, will of course have to benefit indirectly. In addition I have tried to follow out a suggestion of one of my young friends, who asked me if my new book would answer all the questions she was too proud to ask.

First Edition from 1928, with 'the author's compliments' inscription on F.F.E.P.

CONDITION: General light wear to boards commensurate with age. Moderate shelf and corner wear. Gilt titles to spine with horseshoe design on cover. Moderate browning to early and later end-papers and page edges otherwise clean and bright with clear illustrations throughout. (See photos)
