Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent resource for young or older readers wishing to learn about everything horse-related. It is extremely easy to read, yet contains a huge amount of relevant information. We use this book to study for Horse Bowl competitions and kids from 8 to 18 years of age just love it. Written in an easy-to-read style, this book combines the information contained in a textbook with facts and pictures interesting enough to be an "everyday" reader. Highly recommended for people who love trivia, for people who love to read and learn and have an interest in horses. It would be a valuable resource for wanna-be horse owners and experienced horse owners as well. This is, by far, the best book we have ever come across for keeping all ages of readers focused and interested in learning about horses!

I highly recommend this book. It will appeal equally to adults and youth alike. It is used as a resource for Knowledge Bowls. You may not be able to find this in your local library as it wasn't marketed to the library community and only available in the last year on Amazon. It's definitely worth every penny.

Equine Scinece: Basic knowledge for Horse People is one of the best equine books I have read. It fills the void between basic cute horse picture books and complex college texts. The author has provided a resource that is not only easy to read, but incredibly useful. Any youth that in interested in equines or the equine industry shold take a look at this book. If you own a horse, you need to own this book.

Wonderful book! I am a 4-H'er who went to Kentucky twice for the Eastern National 4-H Horse Round Up for both Quizbowl and Communications. We were asked to read this book to prepare for Quizbowl, and it truly became an invaluable resource! In fact, the first year I went to this competition, Ms. Griffiths spoke, and several autographed copies were given away as prizes for winners. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is in 4-H or Pony Club! I do not think that giving it five stars can do it justice for just how excellent of a resource this is!
