Hundreds of helpful illustrations accompany the straightforward text and useful charts, making The Whole Horse Catalog "the one-stop book for all of your equestrian needs."

If there was an introductory level class for horse owners, The Whole Horse Catalog would be the perfect accompanying textbook. The book surveys all aspects of horse ownership from selecting the horse, stabling the horse, what to feed it, horse health, and so on. It is excellent in explaining horse terms, tack, apparel and events. It describes what all those products you see in the tack store are for. There are lots of diagrams and sidebar-type articles. The coverage is comprehensive. For example, the book even shows and explains the different types of snaps! Other examples: it lists all of the contact information for veterinary colleges. It tells you how to make a muckheap. It shows you different styles of creases on cowboy hats. It explains what TTeam is. It charts the advantages and disadvantages of different material for fences. It tells how to best photograph yor horse. You get the idea? It's like a concise encyclopedia on horses and horse-y things. This book will tell you everything about the horse world you should know, but don't know enough to know to ask.

I owned this book back when it was first published and the new version is just as good with more updated info such as choosing tack, illness in horses, photos and drawings of what these things look like and detailed info on every aspect of horses and their care. Very good book for a beginner because once read your overall knowledge of horses and their care will be quite good and the type of info you can apply. Also gives you tons of references to organizations,clubs,etc. Great book for horse enthusiasts to own.

I have been preparing for some time to get my first horse, which I now have.

I have been doing tons of the reading, watching videos, asking questions of knowledgeable horse people, as well as hands on work with horses over the past few years. The information in this book is presented in clear and concise form that has proved, and continues to be, very helpful to me. Horse care and management requires such a vast range of knowledge. I highly recommend this book as a solid reference.

This is the most comprehensive horse care book I own. I just love this new updated version. I also owned the 1985 edition and this new one has not only updated information, but more information. I highly recommend it to any horse owner or anyone interested in owning a horse (especially good for a first horse owner or lessee).

I have an older version of the book. It was the single most helpful source of questions I had after acquiring my first horse many years ago. I would recommend it to anyone who is even thinking of acquiring a horse.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just received this book and am so disappointed in it. I saw a few bad reviews, but most of them were glowing reports, many from experienced horse people about the information provided. I wanted a book about horse equipment, tack, care, etc. because I sometimes feel overwhelmed with all the "stuff" out there and what the purpose of using it is.
The day I received this book my farrier had suggested I try a "stud chain" on my horse the next time he is shod (he is a sweet horse but horrible in this one area). Yes, I thought, now I can look up "stud chain" - - but, NO, that is not in this book.
The book has black and white drawings, which are not very clear or detailed. For example, in the section on bridles there are 6 drawings of bridles, but several of them look very much alike, and although they are described there is NO information about why you would use one style instead of another. That is the type of information that I was expecting. If that is what you are looking for, don't buy this book.

I found this book quite comprehensive, filled with a lot of tips and information that I didn't know before, which makes it much easier for me to work with horses.

The book is filled with guides, and I would recommend it to anyone that is a beginner in this field.

If you're considering doing ANYTHING with a horse in it, get this book. It's by far the most complete book on basic horse health, stabling, activities, breeds, etc. (And I do mean "basic".) Would have been five-stars for a glossary.
