The USPC Guide to Conformation, Movement and Soundness clearly explains and illustrates good, functional conformation and movement, faulty movement, conformation defects, blemishes and unsoundnesses, their causes, and how they affect the horse. This guide will be helpful to Pony Club and 4-H members, instructors, horse owners, and anyone interested in learning about evalulating horses' conformation, soundness and way of moving.

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.

With my daughter being in Pony Club and me being joint DC for our club this book is recomended reading for our members. I can see why it is very helpful and an easy read. So people that don't know much about conformation will be able to get it. I give this book 5 stars as well as her other books.

HASH(0x9bc0800c) 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.

HASH(0x9bc06f3c) out of 5 stars Good for novices, basic information Sept. 3 2015
By anyab - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
good basic information- very basic information for a child or someone new to horses. All the topics are very cursory and you will need other sources for in depth analysis on any topic touched on in this book. Other than that the information was clearly presented for a 60 page book with illustrations and a large font.
HASH(0x9bc08204) out of 5 stars Good introduction but shorter than I expected July 6 2015
By Sarah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Useful as an introduction especially as far as certain terminology and basic anatomy goes, but a little short for my taste. I was looking for more information as to how conformational issues can affect movement and solutions, and also more detail on the back & musculature.
