I borrowed this book from the public library along with many others on the same subject. After reading through it rapidly, I decided to buy it right away.I plan on studying it in details.We do live around horses and ranches.I do ride horses on trails;I love being around horses,I love riding them but they still remain a bit of a mystery to me.The local rancher or cowboy took care of them,got them ready for me. As a friend and perfect "dude" neigbor,I just sat in the saddle and went along on the ride. Not anymore! Now,little by little, I will be able to gain an understanding and knowledge of horses.I will know better how to deal with horses, how to deal with tacks. When confused by a behavior of a horse, or by an happening on the trail, I can go back to this book and find the answers to my typical "dude" questions. I am looking forward to study this book. It is very well organized; the language is clear;it relates exactly to what I see and experience around me.It will be a wonderful addition to our library. I do know I am not ready to purchase my first horse right now, but, thanks to this book, I know there is hope that a year from now I could become a horse owner!
