Punch,  34 (1858), [viii].






Animal Behaviour, Psychology, Cruelty, Amusement, Expertise

    An extensive summary of PU1/34/5/4, an article describing the system of an 'American gentleman, Rarey [John S Rarey]' for 'breaking and subduing horses'. Explains how Rarey accomplished this feat by techniques which included 'close observation of the horse, his disposition and of the motives which work within the recesses of the equine breast'. Stresses that Rarey's largely successful system does not involve any cruelty to the animal, 'instruments or drugs'.
