    Was this written for me or what?

    Although I have been around horses and such my whole life, I only bought my first horse 6 years ago at the age of 21. Everything was done for me, but now that I have to do it all myself I have found I don't know as much as I thought I had. This book is packed full of ideas for an efficient stable, and offers many do's and dont's. Some of the items I took for granted are talked about, and I especially appreciated the comparison charts for such things as flooring choices, bedding types, and even heating devices. For people like me who may not be exposed to lots of things due to running my own stable, this book is literally a God-send.

    Very Informative

    I've never owned a horse before but I want to in the years to come. I have seen plenty of stables kept by professionals and none of them were maintained as efficiently as the stable in this book. When I do get a horse ( or horses) I am going to refer to this manual constantly. Not only is it full of useful information, it also gives you a visual to go by; the photographs of the well-kept stables ( and some not so well-kept) gives the reader an impression of what to do or not to do. If you have no idea where to start or feel a need to improve your stablekeeping, this is the book for you.
