Overview


A ridden horse is an athletic horse, and just as a human athlete needs to gauge his diet, condition his cardiovascular and respiratory systems, and take meticulous care of his muscles, bones, and ligaments, so too must the rider maintain these systems in her horse. Now, for the first time in one, full-color comprehensive book, Dr. Nancy S. Loving, noted equine veterinarian and dressage, event, and distance riding competitor, addresses the singularly challenging needs of keeping the working horse in working order. With chapters devoted to cardiovascular, respiratory, neurological, digestive, and reproductive health, as well to the hooves, bones, joints, tendons and ligaments, muscles, and skin, Dr. Loving provides a thorough understanding of the intricacies of the equine body. However, this is not just another veterinary manual. While diseases are indeed clearly explained, and relevant diagnostic tools and methods of prevention and treatment are offered for various ailments, Dr. Loving sets her book apart by diligently applying her scientific knowledge to the practical needs of every pleasure, sport, and performance horse owner—whether you simply hack with friends or compete at the highest level. Over 500 color photographs and 4,000 index entries suitably enrich this consummate text. Whether used as a study guide to better understand your equine athlete or as a quick-find reference when you notice a mysterious new swelling on his near foreleg, All Horse Systems Go is the integral ingredient to ensuring your horse can perform to the very best of his ability, whatever his task may be.
