KIRKUS REVIEW

Including over 3500 words used on the Turf, in the Hunting field, Show-ring, Manege, on the Road, Trotting-track, Polo field, Ranch and in the Stable or Stud"", this dictionary runs right down the line from ""AbM"" (Abington mile) to ""Zeeland horse"". The accent is English, although the content extends to cover, under ""The Classics"", American, French and German races, and even the slang is trans-Atlantic, with an item on ""Loco wood"" as well as ""Blow his nose (to) ""To let a horse have a short sharp gallop to clear the air passages"". The length of entries range from short definitions to two to three pages on Dressage, Classics, etc.. The types of quarry as well as horses are included, in an all-around horseman's vernacular. Specialty item.
