As someone who's been involved with horses throughout my life I've always sought a really thorough, easy-to-understand guide for newcomers to the world of horses and riding. This is the publication I've been looking for: It contains well-written and clearly illustrated step-by-step procedures for all the basic tasks in horse handling and grooming, plus a special emphasis on safety throughout. The friendly, "visual" format with photographs and detailed drawings is great for this kind of instructional text.

Although aimed at new riders, the book will also be of interest to seasoned riders too as it not only provides knowledge and skills but also an informative guide to how horses think and how to more effectively communicate with them. The author de-mystifies horse behavior in the "Reading a Horse" chapter and shows how to understand the cues that show a horse's moods and important "warning signs". These are the kinds of things that experienced riders have spent a long time learning to see but the book provides a huge "leg-up" to people who haven't spent a lot of time around horses yet.

The book closes with a really fun chapter on "Horse Play" with step-by-step instruction on how teach your horse some cute tricks.

So I highly recommend this book for new riders, young and old. I've already given away a couple of copies and gotten rave reviews.

The lay-flat binding and emphasis on visual step-by-step photos makes for an excellent guide to horse handling and grooming in Storey's Barn Guide to Horse Handling and Grooming: Essential Techniques in a Hands-Free Format. From approaching and catching a horse to grooming, braiding, tack and more, tips are presented in clear large-sized photos and illustrations perfect for any newcomer to horse care and management - and perfect for libraries catering to the new or young horse owner, in particular.

Love this guide! It shows you everything that you would ever want a beginner to know, and even an experianced person will find it useful! The whole thing being designed like a calendar so it can be hung in the barn is an unbelieveable idea! This was one of the best buys I have made! I would also recommend the other guide by Storeys to go with this one, the Vet Guide!

I purchased this book along with the Storey's Barn Guide to Horse Health Care + First Aid. I am a new horse owner and need some basic information in the areas of horse health, handling, happiness and grooming. There is a wealth of information in this book. There is also a section on training your horse to do some basic tricks that have been really helpful, effective and FUN! Someone with limited to intermediate experience with horses will find this guide very helpful. Those with a great deal of experience might just find it a nice refresher guide to have around too.

I plan to use this during a volunteer orientation at the trail-riding stables where I volunteer. It covers just about anything you can think of, and the photos and diagrams are great!

Ok, so I got this book thinking it would have a lot of detailed stuff about grooming and saddling, and great tips, this was not the case though, and I was a little disappointed. This is a great book for beginners, it has all the basic stuff you need to know, with good pictures and descriptions. However if you are more advanced then I would not bother with it. It just has simple stuff like putting on a halter, taking it off, simple grooming, and tacking, and untacking.
- great for beginners
Overall :
- wouldn't bother for advanced
