London, J.A.Allen & Co Ltd 1998, cm.23x15, pp.XIV,178, softcover. "Make the Most of Carriage Driving" is a delightful introduction to driving in its various forms. The authors combine to provide a wealth of knowledge coupled with a bubbling enthusiasm for all sporting and recreational aspects of driving and for the animals who play an essential role in it. After recounting the history of carriage driving and the evolution of the related sports, the book offers advice on retraining an animal to go in harness and on choosing and maintaining a suitable vehicle and equipment. Correct, safe procedures for putting to and taking out are discussed, and there is detailed advice on how to drive in single harness, followed by descriptions of the principles of driving pairs, tandem and teams. The section on driving in the show ring covers the judge's view-point; types of class, turnout and show ring procedure and also offers practical guidelines as to the best methods of transporting animals and vehicles to and from the showground. In keeping with the authors' obvious love of the animals involved, the book even offers advice on choosing and training a coaching dog to complete the ensemble. "Make the Most of Carriage Driving" offers a colourful blend of history, sound technical advice and encouragement, making it essential reading for any aspiring Whip, or indeed, for anyone who is stirred by the sight and sound of horses in harness.

J.A.Allen & Co 1993, cm.14,5x21, pp.103, legatura editoriale, soprertina figurata This is one of a trio of books ("The Saddle", "Bitting" and "Training Aids") which combine to form a practical manual covering the origin, action, use and recommended fitting of a very wide range of items within the three areas. Written in a clear, readable style and well-illustrated throughout, the books should be of interest to all horse-owners and riders and of value to examination candidates, providing as it does a sound understanding of the subject. This book looks at bitting, with five principal headings, beginning with an explanation of the development of bitting systems, culminating in those currently in use. The function of the bit within the combination of rational aids is defined and is followed by an examination of the equine mouth conformation as a factor governing choice. The bitting groups and the patterns which are available are all clearly explained, together with details of the action of each and their suitability to the purpose and the stage of training. Particular attention is paid to bridle fitting, construction and materials and there is a clear explanation of the influence of bitting auxiliaries (nosebands and martingales) on the action of the bit. Also included is a short section on common bitting problems and another on cleaning and maintenance.
