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.
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.
