DESCRIPTION OF THE Beery Training and Breaking Appliances A Set of Appliances Perfected by Twenty Years of Breaking and Training Horses of All Types and Habits. Also a Few Words from Those Who Have Used Them PROF. JESSE PLEASANT HILL, BEERY OHIO I The Beery Breaking Appliances THE KIND I USED HE DEMAND for Training and Breaking Appliances has T been so constant for many years and especially from those who have seen my work or have taken my Course in cor- respondence, that I have prepared to supply the best and most per- fect appliances made. Knowing that in my twenty years experience of handling the most vicious horses with all the habits that could be conceived of, I would necessarily have to have appliances that would hold in the most testing and dangerous circumstances, many want appliances "just like I used." Now if I should send just the kind I used for the first five or even ten years of my experience, they would be as cumbersome and unhandy, and as likely to fail at the critical time as a set you would attempt to make or have made. The fact is the appliances I offer you have cost me years of ex- perimenting, hundreds of dollars, and lessons learned by hundreds of narrow escapes. I know what it means to have a weak part to break when you needed it so badly. I have had that to happen when work- ing a vicious stallion. I know what it means to have a buckle tear out or rip off. I have had that to happen just at the time to turn victory into defeat. I know what the aggravation is of having a rope so stiff that it would hardly bend after being wet. I have been disappointed when taking a colt out of the stable to find that the foot straps hadl so irritated the skin that the horse was hardly in shape to work. I have been annoyed many times to find a horse's knees skinned be- cause the knee pads had slipped out of their place. Many nights I have lain awake thinking of some improvement in the appliances I might make to prevent a repetition of previous failures. Thus year by year the improvements went on, the weak place being strengthened, the stiff hard parts being padded at the proper place to prevent irritation; the most pliable ropes being used so that frctiop vas reduced to the minimum. 2 To make a long story short, I can say that the last five years of my work traveling and giving exhibitions, my applainces were changed but little, for they were so nearly perfect. When you want appliances "just like I used," I do not send those I began with, but those like I used that last five years of my twentv. I am not only giving you the best leather and workman- ship; but give you also the advantage of twenty years experience with all kinds of horses and often under the most unexpected con- ditions. WHAT THE OUTFIT CONSISTS OF. 1. Surcingle. One continuous piece reinforced where needed. Extra heavy. Double the entire length and sewed. 2. Knee Pads. Extra heavy leather. Will last a lifetime. 3. Foot straps. Lined with calfskin, Buckle guards prevent chafing. 4. Safety rope. Special grade always pliable. Very strong. 5. Throwing halter. Extra strong. Adjustable. 6. Bridle Attachment. Beery Bit with snaps to fasten to Halter. 7. I)ouble Backband and Crupper. Two strong double straps. 8. Guyline and Throwing Strap. Extra quality, heavy strap 16 feet long. 9. Shaft Carriers. Best material, extra heavy. 10. Belly Band. Double and stitched, extra heavy. ii. Breeching. Extra strong, scalloped turnback. 12. Hip Straps. Heavy flat leather, snapped to Dee in back strap. SURCINGLE. The surcingle is made of a good heavy grade of leather. It is acljustal)le on both sides, thus making it capable of fitting the largest horse or the smallest pony. It is well padded to prevent any irri- tation of a horse's back. It has rings properly placed and well fastened through which the safety ropes or the throwing strap passes. These rings are so fastened that they cannot tear loose. The back straps and crupper and shaft holders are easily-attached, also side rings through which the lines pass. There is no need arises where a surcingle can be used but this one fills the need. THE KNEE PADS. Three important requirements of knee pads are that they be well made; that they fit the knee and never slip from their place. The knee - i t _..4 _ pads required my attention for a longer time than any other part of my- 3 appliances. I have them so perfect that they fit the knee and will not slip down or to the side and are so padded that a horse's leg is not rubbed by the straps. You need never fear that the knee pads will not be in their place and protect the knees when handling the most vicious horses. THE FOOT STRAPS. The foot straps are my own special pattern and are one of the most necessary parts of the appliances. A I have learned that it is not the amount of padding, but where it is placed that makes it worth anything upI to prevent rubbing. These foot straps are paddedl right so they will not rub a horse's pastern. The foot straps fit the horse's leg just below the pastern joint and are used with the safety rope as it is used either single or (loul)le. They are also used to prevent a horse from jumping fences or paw- ing in the stall. THE BEERY APPLIANCES IN ACTION. This photograph was taken while the Springfield Stallion was resisting being thrown. He fought the appliances hard with all the muscle, strength and agility he had. The appliances won, and he was brought under perfect subjection as indicated by the photograph on the next page. 4 AFTER THE USE OF THE APPLIANCES. This stallion had been uncontrollable around automobiles, etc. After being subdued by the Beery appliances, he listened more to the driver's voice than to the noise of the automobile. He had tried his strength against man's strength and won. He then pitted his strength against man's inventive genius and lost. He acknowledged man's superiority THE DOUBLE SAFETY ROPE. The Greatest Means of Control Ever Devised. The Double Safety Rope is the best grade of cotton rope. It is just as pliable after being wet as before. It always works with- out friction. This is essential so that a horse hardly knows when they are on and does not realize when they are taken off. It will put the strongest horse on his knees and hold him there without the least fear of breaking. I tried hemp, sisal and other ropes, but all were too harsh to work easily in the rings. Straps twisted and broke. I once paid 3.00 to have a piece of sash cord covered with doghide, thinking that I would now have the perfect rope, but I used it once or twice and it was worn out. Almost by accident I happened to get a special extra grade of cotton rope that fit my pur- pose exactly. Since but few manufacturers make this special grade and scarcely any dealers keep it in stock, I always keep it in stock and never send any other kind with my appliances. 5 THE ADJUSTABLE HALTER. This halter is made adjustable with buckles on both sides. It will fit any horse's head. The head stall is extra strong with good brow band and throat latch. The nose piece is adjustable both in front of the nose and back of the jaw. CAN BE PUT ON IN PARTS. Any horse that has been spoiled for haltering or bridling can be easily haltered and bridled with this halter. It is made so that it can be put on in parts by buckling around the neck, then placing the nose piece around the head below the eyes and buckling. Horses that would not allow anything slipped over the nose may pay no attention to a strap buckled just below the eyes and dropped to its proper place. The throat latch is then buckled and the brow band having been pushed to the side, can be carefully pulled over the ears and the horse has a halter on his head without knowing it. Rings are fastened in each side into which bit straps are fast- ened and you have a strong bridle. One of my attachable Beery Bits goes with this halter so that it can be changed in an instant from a halter to a bridle. This is used for horses mean to halter or bridle, and is made strong enough to be used with halter pullers or strap breakers. DOUBLE BACK BAND AND CRUPPER ATTACHMENT. The crupper attachment is arranged with Double Back Bands, each of which has snaps to be snapped into two rings in the back part of the surcingle. The crupper is necessary in throwing a horse to prevent the surcingle slipping forward. There are rings attached at the proper places to snap a bunch of pans or anything you desire to use in thoroughly testing a horse. By being so easily and quickly snapped on, a kicker can quickly be harnessed without danger. GUY LINE AND THROWING STRAP. This is an extra strong strap sixteen feet long. It has two rings near the end which has a snap in it. The two rings _J_ .... ;_ jJ1; make the strap fit any size horse. 6 This Guy line is very effective, when lproperly used, with balkers and stubborn horses, or shyers. This same Guy line is used as a Throwing-Strap. A snap is in the opposite end from the end used as a Guy line. Pass the snap through the right front ring of the surcingle through the ring of the halter then back and snap to the left front ring of the surcingle. This causes the pull on the surcingle to come just opposite the fastenings of the back straps keeping the surcingle in its place. A pull on the strap overbalances a horse and the size and weight does not make him any more difficult to throw. This device is abso- ,b2.Al lutely necessary to gain ARNOW, the mastery of a horse. Nothing so causes a horse to lose confidence in his strength as to be thrown. THE CORRECT SHAFT HOLDERS. The shaft carriers are made so that the shafts can slip through them easy. Any shaft holder that does not allow the shaft to slip through easily causes the back to become sore and likely to leave white spots, saying nothing about the pain and torture to the horse. When the shaft holders do not allow the shaft to slip easily, a horse can soon be spoiled by being pricked in the shoulders by a shaft point that has failed to slip through. It is not always convenient to walk around the horse and release the shafts. WVith these shaft holders all danger is eliminated. An extra strong lellyband goes ; with them. It has a buckle to adjust it to the size of the horse and a good snap in the end to fasten it quickly when hitching up. The shaft holders are arranged to fasted quickly to the surcingle. THE BREECHING AND HIP STRAPS. The Breeching and Hip Straps are made of good strong mate- rial. The hip straps are adjustable and are attached by snaps to the back band. 7 PRICE OF APPLIANCES. Sometimes I am asked to sell the first four pieces (the Surcingle, Knee Pads, Foot Straps and Safety Rope.) for the elimination of cer- tain habits. The price of this group when ordered alone is -10.00 The price of the remaining eight picees ordered alone is- 12.50 The price of both groups when ordered separately is - 22.50 If you order the entire outfit at one time, the price is -- 20.00 And besides I will make you a present of a Leg Strap, a Pulley Breaking Bridle and an extra Beery Bit. THE BEERY BIT. PATENTED NOVEMBEFt IS-. 190+. YEW 41 ...So 11i ERJ; L FOR VERy SEVER (p IDE REINERS / The above cuts illustrate the four different adjustments, all made by changing the manner of fasteni the IUes. The Beery Bit (Four in One) is the greatest bit on the market today. It is easy for both horse and driver. Easy on the horse's mouth and easy for the driver to keep control. It is the only 8 bit that can be set to have severe action and be easy when the lines are relaxed. The first cut represents the arrangement for an easy bit. The lines are attached to both the large and small rings. The second cut (a powerful bit) shows the lines fastened only in the small rings. This allows the larger rings to press against the mouth and gives a powerful leverage on the bars of the bit. The third cut (very severe) the lines are attached to the front of the bit including both rings. This attachment is especially fitting for a shyer or kicker. You will notice that the back of the bit hits the jaws at a sensitive place. By a sudden jerk on one side, or cracking him on first one side then on the other, his attention is at- tracted to his jaw so quickly that his attention is taken from the thought of kicking or shying. The last cut (for side reiners) is hitched severe on one side and easy on the other. This entirely prevents side pulling. After once using this bit you will never use any other. It is adaptable to so many uses and never lacerates a horse's mouth. LEG STRAP. The Leg Strap is made particularly to fasten the front foot to the surcingle when attempting to throw a horse. PULLEY BREAKING BRIDLE. This Pulley Breaking Bridle, is a wonder. It is simple but mighty. The Bridle will not injure, but is severe in its action. It is not its strength that makes it powerful, but the nerves that it controls. It presses upon the spinal chord just back of the ears and the most sensitive nerves of the mouth. It cannot injure a horse, but it does control him. By its use the most stubborn horse can be taught to lead, or the most vicious stal- lion made obedient. It so keeps the horse's attention that any sore can be doctored. It makes him submissive to be shod or have his feet handled in any way. You will find so many uses for it that you will wonder how you got along without it. All of these parts make a complete breaking appliance. There is no habit so bad nor any horse so strong but that it can be handled by these appliance. Every part is so easily adjusted and arranged so complete and convenient that the fastening of a few snaps puts a horse completely under your absolute control. 9 0 z. 00. .0 O4- ) In 0 .0.0 0'.- 00 cc Ko 0 4.0 .0 .0 0 .0 J00 E c0 0 U -0 0,0 0 .0 H SAVES TIME AND TROUBLE. When working a horse with bad habits or a colt just being trained, you can fasten him so quiclky and easily that he can give you no trouble. The first attempt is the time to give the most im- pressive lesson and this can _.. h i P =be done without cruelty and yet effectively with these appliances. A few minutes work with them proves to any one that their value can be saved many times in training their own colts, or a few vicious horses. There is not a bad habit that cannot be managed with this set of appliances. They are so handy that any habit can be dealt with in an instant-When a horse changes its tactics the parts are there to catch him in the act. The Appliances are made of excellent leather and after pat- terns that fit. Many of my students are harness makers and they, realizing the necessity of the shape and padding to be correct, order their ap- pliances of me rather than attempt to make them themselves. J. L. ARBUCLKE, fMANUFACTURER OF AND DEALER IN FINE SINGLE AND DOUBLE DRIVING AND TEAM HARNESS SADDLES, ETC. PROF. JESSE BEERY, BYESVILLE, 0. PLEASANT HILL, 0. MY DEAR SIR:- Enclosed you will find a check for your Complete Set of Ap- plainces for Training and Educating horses. I am a great lover of horses and I want to get the whole outfit complete. I have a fine pair of young horses that I want to give a Course of Education. Please send me the outfit at once. And oblige, J. L. ARBUCKLE. 12 TRANSFORMS A DANGEROUS BRONCO TO A GENTLE FARM HORSE. PROF. JESSE BEERY, SCOTLAND, S. DAKOTA. R. R. No. 2 PLEASANT HILL, OHIO. DEAR SIR:-The appliances purchased of you have been re- ceived and I am well satisfied. I have had good luck with a broncho which I bought two years ago. I thought I could break her, so I got a surcingle made and ropes and straps of one kind and another and finally got her so I could work her some, but with no satisfaction. I had to use a strap to hitch the tugs and then look out that I didn't get kicked, because she would watch her chance to hit a fellow. But now I have given her a course that she couldn't get the best of. I now have her so I can hitch and unhitch her just like any other horse. I have put in 100 acres of oats and plowed 30 acres of corn and she has workled every (lay. I couldn't have got along without your Course and Appliances and thank you very much for them. Yours truly, E. R. FOWKES. Prof. Jesse Beery, Dear Sir:- We have received your breaking outfit, and it is a very good one. We could not get the harness makers around here to make such a set for less than 830.00, and then it would not be much of a thing. You sent us a far l)etter outfit than we could expect for 20.00. You certainly deal with people on the square. Yours very truly, LOUIS WOLFE, KINROSS, IOWA. Prof. Jesse Beery, Dear Sir:-Your appliances for breaking and training horses are all right. They beat anything I ever tried. I have conquered six spoiiled mares pretty thoroughly with them. I thank you very much for the instructions I got from you. Yours very truly, ALBERT LOCKE, HAGERSTOWN, IND. 13 THE WELLS OUTLAW STALLION BEING DRIVEN AT THE SECOND HOME COMING. The intense resistance of this vicious stallion that had not been hitched to a vehicle for more than ten years, was held in control by the Beery appliances. No difference how strong or how hard they fight, this set of appliances brings them under perfect control. APPLIANCES SUBDUING A BALKER. PREF. JESSE BEERY, WAYLAND, IOWA, R. R. No. 1. My DEAR SIR:-I received your breaking appliances in good shape and find everything just as represented. I have used it on a balky horse and learned him several points. I should not part with the harness as I am expecting to get lots of good out of it. Yours truly, ELMER E. NOBLE. APPLIANCES HOLD A HORSE TO BE DOCTORED. PROF. BEERY, ARCANUM, OHIo, R. R. No. 3. DEAR SIR:-I received my harness all 0. K. I have a horse with the Fistulo, and the nicest way to doctor him is to lay him down 14 with the throwing appliances. Before I got them I had to call in the neighbors and now I can doctor him myself very easily. W. 0. MOORE. Appliances Increased the Value of One Horse 50. Prof. Jesse Beery:- Dear Sir:-I have handled that nine year old mare that I wrote you about a short time ago. With your instructions I had complete success in the work, and did it with ease. I gave her a course of sub- jection as you advised, and gave her a complete working out and made her submissive to everything she was especially afraid of. She resisted the appliances, and fought the rope up to the point of un- conditional surrender. I am fully satisfied with the appliances, and let me say right here, I have the utmost confidence in them, and money could not buy them if I could not procure another set. The appliances made the handling of this mare so complete and easy, she was so well subdued that I drove her to Woodstock, and she did not scare at street cars or motor cars, and remained under perfect control. I could not approach these objects before handling her without great risk. In the handling of this one mare the appliances were worth 50 to me, as they added more than that much value to her. Yours very truly, CHAS. ROSE, EMBRO, ONT., CAN. PROF. BEERY:-Every part of your appliances is first class. They give entire satisfaction and are the best combination I have ever seen for breaking horses. Yours very truly, J. C. DIEDRICHS, KERROBERT, SASK. CAN. PROF BEERY:-Your appliances prove of excellent material and workmanship. They will settle any horse if they are properly used. I was so anxious to try mine, that I used them the day I got them. They are just what you claim, Yours truly P. M. HADSELL, LIMA, OHIO. DEAR PROFESSOR:-Your appliances are very satisfactory. If I had the patterns, I could not have had a set made for less than 30.00. Very truly yours, M. L. ECHALS., POTTSBORO, TEXAS, R. R. No. 3. 15 Prof. Jesse Beery, Dear Sir:-I received the breaking appliances some time ago. They- were just as you said they would be. I am sending you a photo of a S250.00 saddle that I have. I have seen all kinds of breaking appliances, hut none of them are as handy as yours. I would not trade my appliances for this 82.50.00 saddle which was given as a prize for riding an outlaw broncho. I have broken that stubborn four year old that I wrote you about some time ago. Your method and your appliances fixed him all right. Yours very truly EMIL MULLER, HELIX, OREG. THE RESISTENCE GONE The picture above is a photograph of a thoroughbred saddle horse that firightened at unusual objects and resisted the appliances principally by kicking. After he had done his "best" to free him- self from the overpowering appliances, he allowed Prof. Beery and his assistants to stand on him and the picture shows Prof. Beery firing a 32 revolver while standing on his side.. 16 Prof. Jesse Beery, Dear Sir:-I have used the appliances according to the instruc- tions and succeeded better than I had expected. The first one that I worked with them was a five year old mare and weighed about 1150 and was well muscled. She was a regular man killing monster. The owner had given up all hopes of ever working her and was going to shoot her. She would kick until completely exhausted at the sight of a man or anything that displeased her, and she would bite when- ever she had an opportunity to do so. She was a fright in every way. Now I ride her every where, drive her single and double, and she is just as kind and nice as any horse could be. The best investment I ever made was when I purchased your set of breaking apliances. Yours truly, JAMES H. MARQUIS, FORT KEINT, MAINE. SARON'VILLE,. NEBR. Prof. Jesse Beery, Dear Sir:-I received your set of appliances some time ago, and tried them on an outlaw broncho, and soon had it going fine. Yours very truly, ALBERT HOFFMAN, BRUCE, S. DAK. 17 MCMIZ3 XrZrZ3rZ 3 M9M C!M! rJnC3Q3 Ouarantee I guarantee every set of my Break- ing Appliance to be as described in this Catalogue and should any part break by an unusual strain, I will re- place the part.

He works her in a four horse team, three horse team, two horse or single, and he is surprised that she is so completely cured. I claim my success with that mare was due to the complete breaking appliances I got from you. I could handle her just as I pleased with them. Wishing you success, I am, Yours very truly, JNO. C.
