From Library Journal
Horse lovers will flock to this volume, which is chock full of down-to-earth, practical advice. While much of the information would be useful to anyone involved with horses, this book is really for the prospective horse owner who is just starting out. The novice will find the book easy to use, as each chapter stands on its own as a source of information about a specific aspect of horse ownership. Users can refer to the topic they need, and important sections are marked with icons indicating "Tip," "Warning," and "Remember." There is even an indicator for "technical stuff" that the beginner may not need to know. The book's coauthors are a veterinarian and an editor of an equine magazine, respectively, and both are well versed in the intricacies of horse ownership. They are careful to point out matters of protocol, those things that are always done a certain way in the horse world, though often for no apparent reason. A worthwhile purchase for public libraries.ADeborah Emerson, Monroe Community Coll., Rochester, NY
