Horse Lover’s Daily Companion is a unique, easy-to-use, and inspiring handbook filled with a year’s worth of insight, helpful tips, and practical advice into the equine-human relationship for all horse lovers and owners. Whether you’re a riding veteran or someone who’s simply pined away for horses since childhood, this book will provide you with a lifetime’s worth of ways to enjoy and appreciate horses, whether or not you have 40 acres and a stable of Appaloosas in your backyard, or just a shelf full of books! The format–a year-long, day-minder-type book– is not meant to be read cover to cover; rather, the book can fall open on any given day and provide insight, inspiration, and valuable information on everything equine.
Each day features rousing notions, activity suggestions, and novel facts that remind you of why you love horses:
Monday - An illustrated guide to horse breeds, from Appaloosa to the Zorse
Tuesday - Equine activities, such as riding sidesaddle, herding cows, and driving
