From the Back Cover

The Essential Handbook for Every Horse Owner

Effective management requires knowledge, dedication, and a sincere interest in the well-being of horses. In this thoroughly updated edition of her best-selling classic, Cherry Hill teaches you how to be a responsible steward of the land and refine your "horsekeeping consciousness" while providing horses with the best care possible.

A thorough understanding of horses is critical to good horsekeeping. Hill explains the behavior and needs of the horse, then helps you choose a management method that fits your lifestyle and locale. Read this book, and learn how to maximize your horsekeeping effectiveness with careful planning of facilities and diligent management routines that will keep horses happy, healthy, and safe.

Generously illustrated with photographs and instructive plan drawings, this new edition features expanded coverage of environmentally responsible management methods, acreage selection, plot layouts and barn designs, fencing options, pasture management, and useful checklists.

Format: Paperback
This book is a great resource for those wishing to build an equine facility - on any scale. However, this is not a guide book for horse ownership. If you board your horse somewhere, you do not need this book. If you are shopping for land and want to build your own horse place, then this book is perfect. If you are trying to figure out if your set up is safe and good for your horses, then get this book. If you are dedicated to making the best out of your land and your horse, then this book is the perfect resource, and it will help you decide if your land is right for horses or if horses are right for your land. Appropriate land use is important, and Cherry Hill shows how to incorporate horses into your land management practices - or is it incorporating good land management practices into your horsey haven? Her ideas and standards for barn design are also good industry standards. I highly recomend this book for architects and land planners who design equestrian homes/communities/barns.

I was looking for a book that could give me a good overveiw of what to expect if I wanted to be a horse owner. I have worked around horses but have not owned one of my own yet, this book gave you a great look at different options, and why each option may or may not work for you based on your circumstances. It made me think of things I had not yet concidered. I have read the book all the way through but keep going back an re-reading parts here and there to help me claifiy my research. I would definately recommend this book to anyone interested in owning one or many horses

Excellent book for all. I am particularly pleased with the practical information available to the fairly inexperienced. I have a very good picture of how to layout and set up my facility based on my needs and future plans for my horses. I would recommend this particularly to those who are starting from scratch with setting up their barn/stable.

Cherry Hill has done it again. Horsekeeping on a Small Acreage is a must- have for all horse owners. It includes grooming tips, a barn-care schedule, and even a suggested layout for your farm! It also includes tips on choosing land.

If you love your horse and are tired of the boarding scene and live in an area where land is either scarce or extremely expensive this book is for you.

Format: Paperback
Ms. Hill has written a book that fits in well with the psyches of horse-lovers--those who may have just one horse, a herd or stableful, or know that someday they will be a horseowner. It's a book to inspire, inform, encourage, and gently correct when necessary.

I loved it at the library, so I had to have my own copy to use and enjoy full-time. Love to look at the diagrams for barns and property layouts. Lots of tips for improving the smallest acreage in an environmentally sensitive manner. Ms. Hill also shows her love of horses by including dozens of photos of her own equine friends to illustrate her points throughout.

Having ridden horses my whole life without ever having the privilege of being an owner, I wanted to get as much data as possible before embarking on my initial purchase of two horses. This book has it all, The book is well written, incisive and all inclusive. I discovered the book on recommendation of a friend and a long time horse owner. I am so glad he pointed me in the right direction. With the help of this fine book my horses and I will enjoy many happy, healthy and safe years together.
