Top customer reviews
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
There's a good section on catching, tying, and handling the horse. There is some basic safety information omitted.
The hoof care is completely lacking. There is only information on how to lift and support your horses feet. This should be a VERY detailed section of the book considering how important it is to a horse.
Daily grooming info is only OK.
Washing section is acceptable to good.
Clipping section is good but doesnt cover special clipping patterns.
Mane and tail care and braiding is good.
No leg wrap information is included.
No transport of horse information is included.
This all said - it's really hard to find a great grooming book.
It has nice close-up pictures to explain how to halter a horse...how to check it's fit.
Shows types of ropes and snaps/attachments.
How to tie up and teach your horse proper behavior.
How to bathe and groom and clip. Also, how to care for mane and tail.
Once you have done these activites once...you no longer need the book.
However, there are those of us who HAVE NOT done it yet that need this as a reference.
This book provided the information they needed in quick and easy slices.
This laid the ground work for more intensive sessions which they will receive later on in their veterinary and general animal care courses.
I am very pleased with this book.
