equally smart. If initials are used with any of these patterns they should be placed over the hips. It will be noticed here that the groom is wearing such a costume as is appropriate to the purpose, while in Plate XLII, which follows, he is more trimmed into shape conformably to the dress clothing worn by his horse. While undress clothing is ordinarily made with the rug all in one piece, the dress clothing has what is called a quarter or loin cloth, which goes to the shoulders ; a breastplate, which is strapped to it at the crown of the withers and covers the horse's chest ; and a small pad cloth, which goes under the roller. There is also a small breast girth, which buckles to the roller to keep the whole from slipping back. In addition to a roller there should be a surcingle without padding, which can be used when the clothing is thrown over a saddle.
