James Clark was an 18th-century veterinarian and farrier who was responsible for one of the best treatises on care and treatment of horses at the end of the 1700s. ‘A Treatise on the Prevention of Diseases Incidental to Horses’ covers the entirety of horse care including how to build and maintain stables, food and nutrition, exercise, disease prevention and medicine, horse blood-letting, and much more regarding horse health.

 

Clark was highly critical of the state of horse treatment throughout Great Britain, particularly in stables. He even states in this work that “many of the hovels at present used as stables do not even deserve the name”. This book helped establish accepted standards on how horses should be treated and cared for in the 18th-century.
