Excerpt from The Horse-Trainer's and Sportsman's Guide: With Additional Considerations on the Duties of Grooms, on Purchasing Blood Stock, and on Veterinary Examination
A brief treatise on the formation of the horse, so far as it is of importance with regard to his action - of training the racehorse, steeplechaser, and hunter - together with his management in health and disease - has long since appeared to me as wanting in the sportsman's and groom's library.
I was induced to believe that a work on this subject, published at as small a cost as possible, so as to bring it within the reach of every stableman in the land, might be beneficial in rooting out old and carefully-cherished prejudices, which have thriven with greater luxuriance in stable management than in any branch of industry with which I am acquainted.
I am unwilling to lay myself open to the suspicion of wishing to claim for this work any importance as a literary or scientific production. I have endeavoured, in each portion of it, sedulously to avoid all technicalities, and never to use two sentences where one would sufficiently explain the matter in hand.
