Lieutenant Rimington - breaker & teacher of Army horses, WW1

Lt. Mike Rimington, late of the 37th Lancers, seen breaking unruly and vicious horses for the British Army at the Underdale Hall Remount Department near Shrewsbury in 1916. Rimington took on cases of the most unmanageable horses with great success. The horses pictured here include, from top left clockwise, Savage Simon whose report from the War Office had described him as 'Vicious and quite unmanageable. Has injured six men, some badly. Savaged the rough rider and tore the saddle to pieces.' (Rimington is seen with his dog mascot, Tiger). Top right photo shows Rimington demonstrating how he teaches a horse not to strike a man with Bucking Belle who was previously, 'vicious in stable to handle; kicks when approaching; bucks viciously when mounting'. Bottom right shows him standing on Winston Churchill who was labeled as 'quite unmanageable; very wild in stable; dangerous rearer", middle pic shows him sitting on an obedient looking Cunning Cuss who was, 'extremely nervous to approach in stall; fed from other stall; rears up and strikes if ou attempt to bridle him; refuses and bucks when leaving stable; proved vicious on several occasions". Another horse tamed by Rimington, Crippen, had previously struck out and killed a groom. Rimington was the nephew of General Rimington of 'Rimington Guides' fame and went through the Boer War in which he was seriously injured. Date: 1916
