Ignorance and horses are a bad mix that can result in injury and even death. Dr. Jahiel takes the guesswork out of the owner/horse relationship. She has produced a book that is an essential addition to every horseman's library. As a journalist, author and horseman, I can pay no higher compliment.

As a journalist and horseman, I can say with authority that this is an essential book to own. Jessica gives down to earth answers to sometimes complex questions regarding animal behavior. Horses are too large to rely on guesswork. Jahiel gives horse owners an edge.
