This is a great book if you are new to caring for horses, from care in stables, out in the pastures, and more. It also describes how to determine what a healthy horse's aspects are and has a chapter listing nearly every horse disorder, desease, and injury, and how to prevent and treat it. It is especially good if you want to know what to do when transporting a horse and how to care for it at horse shows. Basically, it has everything you want to know about horses except for horse breeds.

If you've never touched a horse then this is a good book for you. If it's for a gift for a beginner rider with actual hours in the saddle and hands on a horse or pitch fork then it's too basic. I traded it in at the store for a book with less basics. The service at the exchange was fantastic!

I went nuts looking for a book that talked about more than one part of the horse or one subject ..I thought I was going to end up buying a book store just to lern enough about my new horse to know what I was doing . THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!

This book taught me so much! Pratically everything I know about caring for horses came from this book. My Aunt had bought it for me for my B-D when I was 11. I loved horses so much! If it weren't for this book my horse probably would have died if I hadn't noticed the sign of colic, which I had learned from this book. I hardly new anything about horses before than. Not only did it help me notice sickness sign it showed me much, much more. That is why I strongly suggest that for your young riders or even for yourself, this would be the perfect gift!

This book is a very good book to learn how to take care of horses. Now I can go to horse back riding and know how to take care of every horse there. Now I Tell apart the cury comb from the reguler Brush. I highly recondmend this book to anyone that is horse crazy.

Colin Vogel, a leading authority on horse care, presents the reader with a fine manual for the beginning and intermediate equestrian. Mr. Vogel illustrates basic horse behavior and anatomy, providing vital tips on controlling your horse, essential hoof care, clipping, transporting your horse and preparing for a show, tack, as well as everyone's favorite task, mucking out a stall. Especially important is the back of the book, detailing foot and leg disorders, parasites, tips on when it's time to call a veterinarian, first aid for injuries and nursing care, as well as foaling and year round care of your horse. The Complete Horse Care Manual is a must for the library of any novice or intermediate equestrian.
