Editorial Reviews

Horses All
Chock full of practical information and how-to tips. It will demystify contracts and regulations and explain in detail which materials are good to use around horses and which are not.
Horse Illustrated
A vast resource directory for locating services and products, along with a glossary of more than 300 terms to help you better understand the start-to-finish process.
Chronicle of the Horse
If you haven't planned on building or renovating, this book will inspire you to start. And if you have an inkling that you might, you shouldn't make that first sketch on a napkin before reading Horse Housing.
