The Essentials of Horsekeeping


Product Description
Product Details


"When horse lovers first start riding, all they usually think about is being on the back of a horse, learning the intricacies and skills of horsemanship. But what about the care of the horse? Hairston, a newspaper and magazine writer on all things equine, provides a nice primer to taking care of a horse. Starting with the subject of housing, the author discusses what must be considered in barn design, including stall size and equipment, tack and feed rooms, and various types of bedding. The pros and cons of barns versus pastures are also touched on. What to feed a horse is covered, with an interesting description of determining a horse's weight and fitness. General horse behavior, manners, and training for catching and tying a horse are matched by information on general health (including first aid). Two sections cover grooming, and the final chapter looks at holistic and alternative therapies for horses, including herbal supplements. A good introduction." - Booklist (American Library Association)"
