About this object

Book; entitled 'The Art of Taming Horses' by J S Rarey, published in London in 1858 by Routledge. This book has a hard yellow cover printed with publishing details and a picture of a horse head. 'A K Taylor' is written in the top corner of the title page.

Horses were of great importance to Alberton and there were at least a dozen in 1885, used for riding, farm work and vehicles. Allan Kerr Taylor also had an interest in the Auckland Racing Club, holding the positions of steward, in 1885, Vice President, in 1886, and President, from 1887 until his death in 1890. However, while he and his family regularly attended race meetings, he did not own any racehorses.
