Preview of English translation:

4. But, verily, he who fetters the horse without announcing it to the Brahman and the gods is liable to incur injury. He addresses the Brahman (the superintending priest) by saying, “O Brahman, I will fetter the horse for the gods, for Prajapati: may I prosper therewith!” and having made the announcement to the Brahman, he ties up the horse, and thus incurs no injury. “Fetter it for the gods, for Prajapati: prosper thou therewith!” thus the Brahman urges him, and supplies it (the horse) with its own deity. He then sprinkles it (with water): the (symbolic) meaning of this is the same as before.
