Hints on Driving Horses (Harness, Carriage, Etc)

HINTS ON DRIVING HORSES By Captain C.Morley Knight A READ COUNTRY BOOKS CLASSIC REPRINT Originally published in 1884, this extremely scarce early work on driving horses is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. READ COUNTRY BOOKS have republished it, using the original text and illustrations. This excellent little book was written in an era when "handling the ribbons" was not only a pleasurable pastime, but was almost the sole means of transport - hence any hints on making driving more simple, and consequently, more safe, were of inestimable value. In view of the steadily growing interest in this pastime and the constant demand for information on harnessing and driving, this book will prove of great value with its detailed wisdom aimed at both tyro and expert. The book consists of two hundred and twelve pages divided into twelve Comprehensive Chapters, each illustrated with explanatory line drawings: Harness. Driving-Single Harness. Driving-Double Harness. Curricle and Cape Cart. Driving Four Horses-Position of Coachman. Four Horses-The Reins. Four in Hand. The Whip. Starting. Pulling Up. Turning. Useful Hints. Tandem Driving. Tandem Harness. Breaking to Harness. Etc. This is a fascinating read for any driving enthusiast or historian of this mode of transport, but also contains much information and advise that is still extremely useful and practical today. Many of the early equestrian titles, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. READ COUNTRY BOOKS are republishing many of these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.Keywords: Driving HorsesPleasurable Pastime Country Books Line Drawings Tyro Morley Ribbons Reprint Illustrations Wisdom Read Books Hints On Driving Country Classic
