Book Description

Like all other animals the horse is composed of a machine and of a mind which sets the machine in motion. People who manage horses usually give little importance to the mind. But the mind is most important as to command the machine we must first command the mind. Some observations on this subject may be useful to those who have to do with horses. I have added a few remarks on bridling, on the use of the curb-bit and on turning.
