    HORSE SENSE!

    If you thought you knew all there is to know about horses, think again. This little book is great for the rider & trainer. It should come with your first pony or horse. Full of fascinating facts about horses. Especialy good for the parents of "know it all" daughters!

    more from this reviewer

    It's perfect for me.

    It really helped me when I was looking for notes to take for my final project for my senior year. Also, anyone who's a horse lover like I am would love it. I read it every day. I used to always wonder what I would find the next day when I started reading. It's a very good read.
