    GREAT ENCYCLOPEDIA FOR HORSE OWNERS

    I bought this encyclopedia for my 11 yr old granddaughter, and avid equestrian and showman. She reads and studies this encyclopedia as if it were a bedtime story. This publication is valuable through highschool and beyond. She will have a general veterinary knowledge of horses by the time she is 18, and will be well prepared for vet school as she begins her college years.
