    Davis Rides High

    THE EVERYTHING HORSE BOOK<BR/>Karen Leigh Davis<BR/>Adams Media<BR/>F+W Publications Co.<BR/>ISBN: 978-1-58969-859-6<BR/>$14.95 Paperback<BR/>320 Pages<BR/>Reviewer: Annie Slessman<BR/><BR/>As a horse owner, I automatically picked out THE EVERYTHING HORSE BOOK by Karen Leigh Davis as one of my monthly reads. Any book that touts it covers everything you need to buy, ride and care for an equine companion is going some. However, I was not disappointed at the contents of this book.<BR/><BR/>For a novice in the horse industry, this work would provide a great base in selecting a horse, seeing to its care and learning the basics of riding and training. For instance, as a horse owner I was unaware of the history of the horse. This work provides that information in a simple, understandable form without boring the heck out of you.<BR/><BR/>The explanation of the different horse breeds was kept simple. It provides a potential horse owner the tools to determine what breed would fit their needs and riding discipline of their choice. When I owned a riding facility, it amazed me that so many people responded, ¿I want a black¿white¿spotted¿horse,¿ when asked what breed they wanted. Reading this book would alleviate the myth that a breed of horse is a color.<BR/><BR/>Housing, daily care, costs involved, veterinary care, what to feed your horse, the amount of water your equine pal will need daily, equine diseases and disorders, horse behavior are just a few of the subjects covered in this book. Buying a horse is just the tip of the iceberg in horse ownership¿this book makes that fact abundantly clear to a reader.<BR/><BR/>Davis has gone to great lengths to cover the many aspects of equine ownership. This horse owner gives her an ¿A+¿ in covering the horse, its needs and capabilities. If you are thinking of buying a horse, buy this book first. It will save you a lot of heartache and regret.
