5.0 out of 5 stars Beginner-Great Picture Guide Feb. 23 2004
By A Customer
This book matches exactly what the title says it is providing the beginner with the basics of handling and grooming on a horse that is use to both (in my mind set it pretains to a very gentle well trained horse that is use to a lot of handling, like someone else stated a sound horse).
The pictures and text appear to be complete on how to do things right and it's my kind of book, no long winded, wasted or unneeded words to make a bigger book thus wasting my time or book shelf space.
It does just cover the basics on how to do it (not with a horse that is unruley) and on handling you will quickly out-grow the book. It does contain more information on grooming than it does handling so if you are new at that it should be very helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect teacher for the beginning horse owner April 6 2000
By A Customer
I have just recently purchased a horse and had to learn a great many things at once. Through the use of this book and its wonderful, concise photographs, I've been able to learn the fundamentals of grooming my horse...and let me say she looks wonderful! Not many horse books reach this far down into the fundamentals and enable one to really take a look at the basics. I was also impressed with the emphasis on safety, and I have probably avoided a few bad situations because of it. Since reading this book, I've begun amassing the rest of Ms. Hill's guides. If they are all as useful as this one, I think my horse will thank me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beginner's only Sept. 8 2001
I really feel this book is for beginner's only.
It has nice close-up pictures to explain how to halter a to check it's fit.
Shows types of ropes and snaps/attachments.
How to tie up and teach your horse proper behavior.
How to bathe and groom and clip. Also, how to care for mane and tail.
Once you have done these activites no longer need the book.
However, there are those of us who HAVE NOT done it yet that need this as a reference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good book- a must for horse owner! Aug. 8 2001
By A Customer
This book is good for beginners, intermediates, and advanced alike. With Hill's pictures and precise information, this deserves a two-thumbs up.
For beginners, Hill explains the basics of handling horses, grooming them, and washing them.
For the intermediate and advanced riders, all of this reminds them about the basic horse care. A must for every rider and horse owner!

5.0 out of 5 stars Horse Handling & Grooming April 13 2000
As a new owner of young untrained horses this book was invaluable in my library. The step-by-step photos make every skill easy to understand and attempt with your own horse. The instruction text is clear and concise and Cherry Hill has covered the "must knows" for every horse owner. I would recommend this book for any horse person.

4.0 out of 5 stars Book for Novices Aug. 11 2002
By A Customer
This is a good book for first horse owners or leasers of basically sound horses. The photographs were very helpful in illustrating the procedures described in the easy to read text. It's a start, but soon the horse owner will be looking for something with more substance and detail that covers problems that are not addressed in this book.
