The ABC of Horse and Pony Problems by Josephine Knowles FBHS

Model Number: 9780851316918

£19.99 GBP
Since she was twelve years old, Josephine Knowles has ridden, worked and competed with horses and ponies, many of them being other people's problem animals. This wealth of experience is concentrated in this the most comprehensive guide to the subject ever written. Bad manners are covered in depth but 'problem' is not always synonymous with 'ill-mannered'. There are detailed chapters on problems either stemming from or relating to: ailments, lameness; saddlery; riding; training; loading; travelling, and problems peculiar to the field-kept or stabled horse. Valuable advice is given on assessing a rider's limitations and how they affect the horse, and buying a suitable mount. A stable companion of "ABC of Breaking and Schooling Horses", this common-sense approach to all equine problems will save the average horse owner much time and heartache and will result in horses and ponies that are well-balanced and happy. The book is complemented by the author's own photographs and profuse, clear-line illustrations by Ejnar Newcome-Baker
