The werk ling must use other means to attain his ends; the string man disdains the delicate effects which make for every thing of the best In horsemanship. A little SO jiound boy will control per fectly a rattle-brained race horse that no man could hold by main strength; a slight woman will guide four horses as few men can It Is the combination of the attributes named that enables them to do If. Appropriate bitting has much to do with success, but the novico is apt to proceed to the extremes of severity In his desire to ge,t that delicacy of touch and promptness of response which he thinks should follow sharp restraint.
