    Great resource for horse lovers!

    This book is a comprehensive guide for horse lovers of all disciplines. From hunter-jumper, to western pleasure, to gaited show horses; this book has something for everyone. Each section has a step-by-step guide to creating fabulous braids. The writer really focuses on helping you use the right tools and discusses mane/tail preparation. The full-page color illustrations are gorgeous and really help visual learners with correct hand/finger placement. As an added feature, the book has a hole in it that continues through all the pages; that way you can hang the book up on a nail to keep your hands free while braiding. This book is a must have for all riders from children to professional grooms.
