4.3 million Americans ride recreationally and 1.9 million own horses. For those who love to ride and want to own, this is the perfect guide. It explains what's entailed in ownership-from choosing a horse and tack to feeding, grooming, stabling, and health care-and gives people the know-how they need to have more fun on the trail and in the ring. For this new edition, the authors have revised and updated information throughout on how to select and care for a horse. They?ve brought information on equine illnesses and treatments up to date, gathered together the best online resources for horse enthusiasts, added new safety tips, included more advice on children and horses, and updated the illustrations and 16 pages of color photos.
