Publisher Comments:

The basics of grooming are often the first aspect of horsemanship young riders learn. Here, finally, is a user-friendly guide that allows riders of all ages and stages to smooth out the rough edges of their essential skills while acquiring more specialized knowledge. Grooming Horses is the first comprehensive and yet easy-to-follow, superbly illustrated handbook on every aspect of grooming and skin care, including braiding and show preparation. It includes a whole host of invaluable timesaving tips, such as pulling the mane after a horse has been worked so the pores will be open and the hairs will come out more easily.

 

With step-by-step full-color photo sequences as well as sidebars throughout, not to mention an information-packed, clearly worded text, Grooming Horses is the definitive new resource on an age-old subject. It is a must for anyone who rides, owns, or tends to a horse.

 

More than 475 full-color photos on topics such as:

  • Basic grooming
  • Bathing
  • Clipping
  • Braiding
  • Common skin ailments
  • Show preparation for English, Western, and breed shows
  • Training a horse to accept the implements of grooming

Synopsis:

An easy-to-understand visual guide to every aspect of grooming and skin care, including braiding and show preparation
