Publisher Comments:

The clear, easy-to-follow visuals that are the hallmark of the Barn Guide series are uniquely useful to people working with horses. Horses are large animals and can be unpredictable. This at-a-glance reference to dozens of common procedures frees the handler's hands, giving her better control of every equine situation. Better control leads to increased safety, and safety—for both human and horse—is the priority for every equestrian.

Author Charni Lewis, a gifted trainer and instructor, gives readers a complete course in horse handling and grooming. She begins by explaining the safest way to approach a horse—where to stand, how to walk behind him—and then leads the reader through catching, leading, turning out to graze, and tying, always emphasizing efficiency and safety. Grooming is just as important as handling, and Lewis shows how to do it correctly, from clipping fetlocks to braiding manes and tails.

Providing guidance on every aspect of handling and grooming, this manual covers all the things new owners and caregivers need to learn and provides more experienced handlers and stable managers with a thorough refresher course of clear, accurate, user-friendly information.

Synopsis:

The Reference to Hang in Every Barn

Finally, a visual guide that leads you through every step of handling and grooming your horse, leaving your hands free to perform each procedure! Expert trainer and instructor Charni Lewis practically takes you by the hand herself as you catch, lead, braid, tack up, and even trick-train your horse.
