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.
It has nice close-up pictures to explain how to halter a horse...how 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 once...you no longer need the book.
However, there are those of us who HAVE NOT done it yet that need this as a reference.
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!
