Petruchio is late for his wedding. All the family members and guests are worried about the fact if he is coming or not.
[Note: this is just an overview of the topic]

Petruchio comes dressed up in a new hat, an old jerkin, a pair of old breeches (that were turned thrice), a pair of boots, with a broken hilt an chapless, and with two broken points. Even his horse was looking messed up. The horse was hipped-- with an old mothy saddle and some stirrups of no kindred-- besides, possessed with the glanders and like to mose in chine; troubled with the lampass, infected with the "fashions", full of windgalls, sped with spavins, rayed with the yellows, past cure of the fives, stark spoiled with the staggers, begnawn with the bots, swayed in the back and shoulder-shotten, near legged before and with a half bitten cheek, and a headstall of sheep's leather, which was being restrained to keep him from stumbling.

For more reference[ for a more accurate note]: refer to 3.2.32 to 3.2.72 in the play book- The Taming of the Shrew.
