NIGHT-MARE. A malady incident to horses as well as human bodies, proceeding from the same causes; it will cause the horse to sweat more in the night than in the day, and thereby deprive him of his rest. You may discover it by observing it in the morning, whether he sweats on the flanks, neck, and short ribs, which are sure indications of it.
Harewood, Harry. A Dictionary of Sports. London: T. Tegg and son, 1835
