*Garsault (François Alexandre Pierre de):

Captain of the stud farms of France, born in 1673, died in 1778. He left treatises on hippology which were very long in favor of the Nouveau Parfait Maréchal (1741) which was still reprinted in 1843; the Rider's Guide (1769); Treatise on Cars (1756), a curious abridgement of Gayot's work under the title of Facts of Famous and Interesting Causes (1757) which gives many details on the various kinds of torture.
