his title gives sound guidance on various subjects, from the choice of stallions to the training of young animals for their eventual roles under saddle. It discusses the various considerations to be made before deciding to breed a foal; preparing a mare for stud; care during pregnancy; aftercare of the mare and foal; and the education of a youngster during early training on the lunge and ridden work at home, away from home and at rallies and shows. The emphasis throughout is on human and equine safety and the production of a confident, obedient horse or pony.
