I recently read this book to brush up on my horsekeeping skills...The information helped me to plan our new barn.By reading this book I was able to pick out small things to help me design and lay out my barn and corral areas...It's very helpful to be organized, have a tack room designed to take care of all my expensive tack and have things easily available in case of an injury or emergency.

I have 1 indoor arena, 1 covered arena, and can stall up to 100 horses. Cherry Hill writes in an easy to understand and very articulate manner information that anyone owning from one to One Hundred horses should read.

She has a keen and very healthy insight with a common sense approach to horses. I was lucky enough to meet her at "Road To The Horse" where she was one of the prestigious judges, and very impressed with her down to earth and friendly attitude. She has a true passion for horses and what is in their best interest.

I have at least 6 of her books and plan on purchasing the rest as time & money allow. You will get your moneys worth from her.

I'd recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn how to set up and organize proper, clean, safe and efficient care for horses. The pictures are great, and make it a lot easier for the beginner to visually see what works. It's an excellent resource!

As a novice I was heartened by the simplicity and yet comprehensive presentation of what one would need to know if they decided to own and maintain their own stable. However, after reading Cherry Hill's book Horsekeeping on a Small Acreage I was disappointed that there were not color photos. This might be because this volume was copyright in the year 2000 and the volume Horsekeeping on a Small Acreage was copyright 2005. Both are great books.

This is a good beginners guide or a good refresher course. Don't look for a lot past the basics, though.
