"The Gentleman's Pocket-Farrier" is a concise and accessible handbook for horse owners, with chapters on everything from preparing for a journey to general care and management, treating ailments, and more. This vintage book will appeal to those with an interest in equestrianism, and it would make for a fantastic addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: "Legs", "Wind", "Cure for a Broken Wind", "A Draught-horse", "A Saddle-horse", "The Splint", "The Spavin", "Windgall", "Setting out on a Journey", "Directions for Mounting", "Directions for Going", "Correction Ill-timed. Correction Well-timed. An Easy Rein", "Cutting", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on maintaining and caring for horses. This book was first published in 1836.
