BOOK REVIEW by Leanne Williams
By Elizabeth Owens and Peter Huntington
There are many, many books available to horse enthusiasts, but not so many just directed to Australians and New Zealand horse owners.
Well, Horse Sense is, written by Elizabeth Owens, Grand Prix Dressage rider and Peter Huntington, Equine Nutritionist it is a book which EVERY Sorthern Hemisphere owner should have as a reference.
It is a book that is laid out simply so that even the youngest reader will easily be able to use as a reference to aid them in the well-being of their Equine friends.
For those wanting to expand on their equine knowledge, there is information on everything from horse management, safe handling procedures and riding / training. This combined with an in-depth section on feeding and parasite control, this book covers everything you will need to know regarding owning a horse.
The chapters on buying are informative and once you own that furry friend you can learn about, different breeds, health, safe facilities, how to transport and if it is your endeavour – gaining employment in the horse industry.
If you have a need to sell there is also some easy to understand advice on the easiest way to do this.
Even after 30 years of owning horses it is my first GO TO when I have a problem that I have not got the answer for.
This book is a MUST OWN for every Australian and New Zealand horse owner.
