Overview

Susan Harris has found the way to take a good book and make it better. She's done it by updating Grooming to Win, the definitive reference on the subject, to include current show-ring standards and breed requirements as well as other changes that have taken place since the book was first published in 1977. Now there is a new Western chapter and a chapter on dressage and the Sport Horse, to mention but two of the most notable additions. Extensive new information is given on the following topics:

  • conditioning and developing show horses
  • health care, feeding, leg care, bandaging and massage
  • safety in handling, grooming and clipping the difficult horse
  • techniques and products for show grooming, braiding, clipping and trimming
  • show presentation details for all breeds and disciplines.
This second edition has charts that highlight correct show trim/braiding by breed, discipline and division for quick reference. In all, a book that George Morris recommends "to those sincere students of riding who want to make a comprehensive study of being a horseman."
