CASTING, or Overthrowing, A Horse. The way to do this, is to bring him upon some even ground,
long rope, double it, and cast a knot a yard from the bow; put the bow about his neck, and the double rope betwixt his fore legs, about his hinder pasterns, and under his fetlocks; when you have done this, slip the ends of the rope underneath the bow of his neck, and draw them quick, and they will overthrow him ; then make the ends fast, and hold down his head, under which you must always be sure to have store of straw.
Harewood, Harry. A Dictionary of Sports. London: T. Tegg and son, 1835.
