Excerpt from Riding and Driving Horses: Their Breeding and Rearing
The Chair was taken by Mr. William Eve, the President of the Farmer's Club. There was a large attendance of Members and Visitors present.
Mr. Walter Gilbey, of Elsenham Hall, Elsenham, Essex, introduced the subject as follows: -
For many years the subjects dealt with in this Address have interested me deeply. Twelve months ago I made application to Mr. Druce, the Secretary of this Club, to be allowed to call attention to them, but was unfortunately too late, all arrangements for 1884 having been then made.
Very many causes have been assigned for the decline of horse-breeding. It will be noticed that I accept one only, to wit, the failure in persevering to raise animals of size, quality, and value. The principal object which I have in view, therefore, is to make our shortcomings in this respect more generally known, and to offer suggestions for breeding superior horses, as these latter will always command a ready sale at prices remunerative to the breeder.
It is an admitted fact that the true-bred English hunter, hack, carriage and draught horse cannot be equalled in any other country.
