MASTER OF THE HORSE has the charge and management of all the king's stables and horses; he has authority over the equerries and pages, coachmen, footmen, grooms, farriers, smiths, saddlers, and all other trades connected with the stables. He has the privilege of applying to his own use one coachman, four footmen, and six grooms in the king's pay, and wearing the royal livery. At all solemn cavalcades he rides next the king.
