Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The horse world has many different "arenas," and even many professionals don't know the terms used outside their areas of expertise. Here, finally in one place, is a complete guide to everything horse-related - a guide that will be equally useful to a seasoned professional, a novice equestrian, and someone who just wants to know everything there is to know about horses.

This hefty, fully illustrated, A-to-Z compendium is an indispensable answer book addressing every question a reader might have about horses and horse care. Covering breeds, tack, facilities, equine care and management, health and safety issues, riding styles and disciplines, shows, horse professionals and what they do, and much more, this book is a reference that will be turned to again and again. From stable design to practice lessons to choosing a riding instructor to loading a trailer, the information is presented in an easily accessible and easily understood manner and is accompanied by clear line drawings throughout.

Book News Annotation:

An encyclopedia of terms and concepts relating to virtually every aspect of equine care, training, behavior, showing, equipment, health, disease, breeding, and more. Entries range from one sentence to several pages and include lists, diagrams, b&w drawings, and tips on everything from how to maintain the correct position in the saddle to what a horse's stance reveals. Suitable for horse enthusiasts from pre-teens upward.

About the Author

Author Deborah Burns spent her childhood years in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts, but by the time she was in her 20's she had a desire to see the world. For the next ten years of her life Deborah was able to fulfill that dream, visiting many countries and working in various fields. Besides traveling through the West Indies and Europe, Deb worked in canneries in Alaska and traveled through South America where she was hired to dive for diamonds in an underground river in the Venezuelan bush. She worked as a reporter in India and helped start a still-thriving newspaper in Ireland, the country she considers her second home. Her many experiences have led to the excellent advice found in her book, Tips for the Savvy Traveler. Deborah came back to the United States with her husband to have the first of her two children. She has written a few history books, including Shaker Cities of Peace Love, and Union: A History of the Hancock Bishopric, and is now an acquisitions editor at Storey Communications, Inc. Deborah now shares her love of traveling with her family.
