TRIPPING. If it arises from a heavy forehand, and the fore legs being too much under the horse, no one can alter the natural frame of the animal: if it proceeds from tenderness of the foot, grogginess, or old lameness, these ailments are seldom cured ; and if it is to be traced to habitual carelessness or idleness, no whipping will rouse the drone. A known stumbler should never be driven alone by any one who values his safety or his life* A tight hand or a strong bearing rein are precautions that should not be neglected, but they are generally of little avail. See Stumrling.
