5.0 out of 5 stars Beginner-Great Picture Guide Feb. 23 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of Money Nov. 8 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I condsider myself a beginner. This book is very simplistic.
I learned most of these things in the first month of taking lessons. If you have a minimal amount of knowledge, this book would be a waste. Don't waste your time or money. I wish I hadn't.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Step by Step Guide Oct. 24 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book really is for beginners but a great book to have. I am 15 years old and it taught me alot about horse handling. My favorite part of the book was about what kind of tack to use. It gave basic knowledge about horses which was very useful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Book for Novices Aug. 11 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
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.
