I purchased this book over a year ago after I initially checked out a copy from the library (I liked it that much!) and completely forgot to review it! It's concise and to the point with great photos and loads of very useful information. It's a great refresher for the experienced equestrian, a great intro for the novice and just a fun and informative read on the basics of everything horse. I highly recommend adding it to your library!
