This encyclopedic guide contains comprehensive text, hundreds of step-by-step photographs, sidebars, and checklists, providing all the information anyone needs about buying, owning, and maintaining a horse.
SciTech Book News Vol. 34 No. 2
This handbook for horse owners and riders explains how to understand horse behavior and breed characteristics, and gives detailed advice on buying, caring for, and showing the horse. Written in accessible language, the book also gives tips on saving money and stretching your budget. Material is in sections on horse basics, choosing a horse, identification and security, housing, feeding, foot care, tack, transporting, grooming, working out, breeding and foaling, and health and first aid. The reader-friendly layout includes color photos on every page, quick reference and tip boxes, checklists, margin definitions, and when-to-call-the vet boxes. Pickeral formerly worked for the Buffalo Veterinary Hospital. She has written a previous book on horses.

Yet another from Tamsin Pickeral. This time a volume to understand horses' behavior in order to develop an equine relationship that is rewarding for horse and human. Step-by-step photographs, quick reference boxes, help tips, checklist summaries and more provide you with everything you need to know about buying stabling, exercising, grooming, training and showing.... An extremely useful book for the general rider.
