Turkish baths for horses


Turkish baths for horses



Clement Stephenson (Propr)


In a personal letter,  quoted in an article in The Field,1    G[eorge] Crawshay told [Stewart Erskine] R[olland] that  Stephenson was the best vet in Newcastle, and that he had opened these baths after reading an earlier article which had appeared in The Field.  This would have been the much quoted letter from Admiral Rous on the training of horses.2    Crawshay wrote:

I went...and found the fire on and the bath heating, the whole contrived most cheaply and simply. A horse had been in on Friday, and had had a sweat with excellent results.
