This book is full of those 'little things' that are very important - that nobody ever tells you exactly about. Another super Cherry Hill book, this is the fourth I have bought and they are all very good.

This is truly for a first-horse owner or someone who is leasing a horse and who wants to learn the basics of horse health care. I found several of the chapters useful for treatments that I needed to give for the first time, but there are other sections that aren't as practical and there is a lot of space devoted to black and white photographs, which are not too useful either as it's difficult to look for differences in texture or coloration that the text elaborates on. Having said this, for a true beginner it is an adequate foundation and would be appropriate for a younger rider/reader as well.

Author, Cherry Hill, and photographer, Richard Klimesh, deserve blue ribbons for this excellent easy to use handbook. Filled with hundreds of clear black and white photographs, the guide covers everything from how to correctly make a bran mash, to how to measure a horse for a winter blanket, to how to give a horse an intramuscular injection. New and experienced horse owners will find the practical advice covered in the step-by-step photographs indispensable. This outstanding book belongs in every horse owner's barn.

Author, Cherry Hill, and photographer, Richard Klimesh, deserve blue ribbons for this excellent, easy to use horse health care guide. The illustrations are superb, and include hundreds of large black and white photographs that clearly demonstrate a wide range of essential horsemanship skills. Ms. Hill covers everything from how to correctly make a bran mash, to how to measure a horse for a winter blanket, to how to give an intramuscular injection. This guide is perfect for both new and experienced horse owners.

Without Cherry Hill and her books with all the pictures I am sure I would have been panicking at every little scratch on my horses. She explains things so a non-horse person can understand without having to run to dictionaries or other horse reference books to look up her explaination. I buy all her books as I find them and enjoy her friendly way of writing. Thank you Cherry Hill for taking the time to make the explaination interesting and informative.
