Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0764154117, Hardcover)

Current and prospective horse owners will want to read this large, informative, handsomely illustrated book and keep it handy for frequent reference. They'll find detailed advice on how to work in harmony with their animal's natural instincts to make it a finer, healthier, happier specimen. The author explains how horses interact in their wild state to form herds and hierarchies, and how they communicate with one another. Understanding these traits helps owners develop an affectionate relationship with their horse and overcome any incompatibility problems that might arise between horse and owner. The author also discusses ways to improve the stable for the mutual benefit of horse and owner, and she specifies field requirements from the horse's point of view. As every horse ages, its general needs and dietary requirements change, and it is vital that owners recognize and deal with these changes to ensure their horse's long-term health. Also discussed in detail are ways to determine the best saddles, bridles, and other equipment for the individual horse, how to recognize signs of illness, how and when to employ first-aid treatment for a horse's injuries, and which are the most effective natural remedies for a horse's various ailments. The book features more than 350 brilliant full-color photos.
