Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Sir William Ridgeway, 09 December 1902

Identifier: Coll-14/9/8/112

Scope and Contents

Ridgeway thanks Ewart for his comments about his own thoughts on the thoroughbred horse. Ridgeway hopes to have the paper printed by January 1903. He believes the Nisaean (or Caspian) breed owed its superiority and size to the crossing of Libyan blood with Asiatic. His paper also discusses the portrayal of small-headed horses portrayed by the cavemen of France. At present, his research revolves around the Norwegian pony with a stripe on its back. He is also greatly interested in Ewart's study of the Mongolian and Przewalski's horse.
