5.0 out of 5 stars What horse people really need to know! Jan. 13 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is where to find the information on horses that you really need but no one ever properly explains. This book puts it more clearly than any other source. When you take lessons or go to shows, you hear about conformation, movement and soundness, but you really need a primer like this to understand what people are talking about. After you read this book, you could converse with a judge like an expert.

3.0 out of 5 stars Basics for Beginners--Old news Aug. 17 2005
By Elizabeth M., Gray - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a basic primer for beginners and children, but it is reminiscent of books I read thirty years ago. The sketches are good and the explanations clear. I wanted more detailed information. You can find this info along with a lot more basic information from other books. I felt it was drasticly overpriced, unless funds go to some charity as a fund raiser. I expected more than this book delivered for the money.
