Photos and descriptions are clear and easy to understand and will train your "eye" to recognize
the desired natural symmetry in horses, and their potential to be successful athletes. Read it before you buy your next horse !
I found it fascinating and I've had horses for over 40 years...it's now part of my collection of equine reference books. Dr Schacht is a respected and in-demand clinician and guest speaker in the USA, not to mention also the breeding director for the Oldenburg North America registry. He knows his stuff.
