From Library Journal
New and prospective horse owners will welcome the publication of this high-quality book, which contains a wealth of information and is well organized and clearly presented, at a very reasonable price. Excellent color photographs and drawings accompany the text, written by a veterinary surgeon who practices in England and specializes in horse care. Topics discussed include basic care, daily routines, stabling, grooming, feeding, health, first aid, and types of tack and care. The chapters on horse disorders and diseases, accompanied by many helpful charts and illustrations, are especially useful. Since this is specifically a horse care manual, the book does not address riding techniques or the various horse breeds. All the photographs are British, a drawback for those who prefer the Western style of riding, as there is only one photo of a piece of Western equipment. But this does not detract from the book's informative value. Recommended, especially for public libraries with popular equine collections.

The reason I gave this a three star rating instead of higher is because of the title being "Complete Horse Care Manual". The information in this book is very basic and good and as long as you know its not "complete" you will be ok.
