SMITH, Sir Frederick
London: Her Majesty's Stationery Office, 1891.
"The subject of saddles and sore backs [of horses] is such an important one that I have considered the lectures delivered by me on the subject, in this school, might be of more permanent value if printed.
"Every officer, non-commissioned officer and man, should be instructed in saddle-fitting, to recognise the various causes of injury, and how to remedy them.
"I have divided my subject under four heads:-
"The Anatomy and Physiology of the Back.
"Fitting the Saddle
"Sore Backs, how they are caused, prevented and remedied." (Introduction).
Through at least World War I horses were so strategic for the British Army that the author, Sir Frederick Smith, reached the rank of Major General as head of the veterinary corps.
