This is a great guide for everyone....there is a lot of information that even seasoned horse owners do not know or need to review. There are many more details involved with horses, however, I think everyone could benefit from having a copy handy especially when it comes to the health and breeding sections. Great book for introducing young adults to horses. This book is a classic.
