Editorial Reviews

Equine Journal
Essential reading for all those involved in equestrianism, from the back-yard rider to top competition world-wide, and is a useful work of reference for all students of massage.
Horsemen's Yankee Pedlar
Plain and simple, this is a terrific book.
Horse & Rider
I'd recommend it to students of massage, as well as any horse owner interested in how massage can help his or her mount stay comfortable and sound.
