W. Robert Cook - Royal Veterinary College, 1948 - reminiscing -
'The Bitless Bridle' - Dr. Robert Cook, FRCVS, Ph.D.

" ... I was trustingly employed by Messrs. Hale and Brown, in Chippenham, Wiltshire, the members of which firm had been kind to me as a student over several summers. This was a predominantly agricultural practice. It did not represent a departure from any grand plan on my part because, at the time, I had no thought of being anything other than a farm animal vet. The salary was ten pounds a week and I thought it princely. Derek Hale, the senior partner and a wise and wonderful mentor, did most of the horse work. He was a keen hunting man and much devoted to Robin, his grey cob. It was thanks to Mr. Hale (I never called him Derek) that I was initiated into the pleasures of riding across country. A few years previously, he had done a similar favour for another assistant, Richard Hartley, (later to become President of BEVA) by introducing him to the gentle art of fly fishing."
