"This book is a good addition to the horse owner's library. Even if you think you know a lot about horses, you will have fun browsing through it many times. It would be of particular benefit to the 4-H'ers involved in hippology." -- Kandee Haertel "Midwest Equine Market And Horseman's Guide" This dictionary addresses almost every aspect of the equine industry - shoeing, anatomy, training, equipment, breeding, horse psychology, and more. Although few people read a dictionary from cover to cover, most are glad the book is on the library shelf when they have a question...will become a well-used source of information for the horseman. -- FS "Western Horseman" "Filling a niche in reference literature about horses, the most helpful features are the numerous black-and-white illustrations. Libraries that plan to buy only one equine dictionary should get this one. Highly recommended for libraries that collect equestrian materials. -- M. J. Antonelli, University of North Texas "CHOICE, Reference Science & Technology" "I found the (book) to be rather complete and have even put it to good use. The dictionary pleased all involved by assuring us that "reata" and "riata" are both correct spellings of the Spanish lariat. From A to Z (this book) is a great reference for any horse enthusiast, including horse owners, veterinary students or 4-H members." -- Rod Dowse "Cascade Horseman"
